That view of Mount Rainier is from the new South Park Bridge, where we photographed the first vehicles to cross on this morning after its dedication celebration (WSB coverage here). Here are highlights for the rest of today/tonight, from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
TODAY’S WADING-POOL SCHEDULE … since forecasters say we’re going into a few days of truly summery temps (near or beyond 80), we’ll list the wading pools and sprayparks open each day. Today – Lincoln Park (which is 7 days a week unless the weather’s bad), 11 am-8 pm; Delridge, noon-6:45 pm. And Highland Park Spraypark is open daily too, 11 am-8 pm. Addresses are on the citywide schedule.
HI-YU WHITE ROSE RECEPTION: From West Seattle Hi-Yu:
