The Cheasty Greenspace was a golden cathedral of glorious big leaf maples at our work party with the Green Seattle Partnership's local Forest Steward. The community has put in superb efforts rehabilitating this formerly abused and neglected hillside greenspace.

We continued the vigilant efforts to keep noxious weeds from retaking the park by digging blackberry and pulling ivy- both of which are continually reseeded into the forest by hungry birds eating the berries (yes ivy / Hedera helix has berries) and spreading the seeds in their droppings.
This park's trails and habitat offer Seattle a significant natural resource that is close to the heart of the city and also accessibly by lite rail! We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Friends of the Cheasty Greenspace in support of this great park.
