Codiga Park is a fun place to experience the Duwamish River because you can either get right up close in the mud next to it, or you can venture up the hill and view it bending around the park. The osprey pole is often in use, which is very fun to see.
The park has many human and natural assets to enjoy. From the website:
"This area was once a dairy farm owned by Codiga family, like so many farms that supplied Seattle its local food. The red barn designed picnic shelter is in honor of the farming history of the site. . In 2005, the City of Tukwila and U.S. Army Corp of Engineers partnered to excavate the center of the property, creating a side channel that offers young salmon a chance to rest, forage for food and avoid predators in a more natural wetland habitat.”
We will return for more planting and stewardship!
