The summer has just flown by, and the apples have been ripening early with our unseasonably war, sunny weather. Several events and a work party are taking place leading up to our ninth annual Festival of Fruit, being held on September 19th this year at the Nancy Malmgren Enivoronmental Center, in Carkeek Park from 10-2. For more information, click here.

DIRECTIONS

Piper’s Orchard in Carkeek Park, Seattle, WA, a historic fruit orchard, may be reached from Carkeek Park’s lower meadow parking lot ( Seattle Park’s directions to Carkeek here ), by walking up along Piper’s Creek.  There’s also a new trail leading down from the park entrance (near the Nancy Malmgren Environmental Center).  An alternative way to reach the orchard is by following the ravine from the park’s southerly McAbee entrance. The McAbee parking lot and trailhead are behind the QFC from Holman Road, off of NW 100th Pl. at 6th Ave. NW. You can get there by taking the Metro 28, 40 or D Line.

TO-DOs:

Play “spot the orchard” with this google map flagging the McAbee Entrance: open the link then zoom in and follow from the small parking lot down into the ravine and around by Piper’s Creek to spy the fruit and nut trees laid out in a grid.
