We’ve written about it many times, but had never before managed a firsthand look at West Seattle’s Walker Rock Garden, a backyard full of rock art from sculptures to stepping stones, created by the late Milton and Florence Walker over more than 20 years starting in 1950 as a labor of love, now a legacy in search of a new owner. It was traditionally open to the public on Mother’s Day, but not for the past few years – until today.
You can stop by until 3 pm (5407 37th SW); the broker who has long represented the home, Brad Cooper, says there’ll be another chance to visit this summer, so don’t worry if you can’t get there on short notice.
We were there about an hour ago, with a steady stream of visitors walking carefully around the yard, looking at the colorful creations. We’ll add a few more photos later.
