Westcrest Park – Finish it!

Date & Time:
September 9, 2018 10 am – 12 pm


We have been working hard for THREE months to remove a giant patch of Himalayan Blackberry next to the dog park parking lot–and this September 9th, we FINISH IT! To celebrate, we’ll be opening up a jar of homemade blackberry jam and toasting with bubbly apple juice (nonalcoholic).

Why are you digging out a blackberry patch, you may ask? Why, tomake room to plant 100+ trees this fall, including the iconic Douglas Fir and Western Hemlock.

Can’t join us this time? Please mark your calendar for the second Sunday in October, 10-noon and plan on pulling English Ivy.

What to Bring:

Dress to protect yourself from the sun, and from Himalayan Blackberry prickles. Closed-toed shoes, long pants, and a light-weight, long-sleeved shirt are recommended. If you have leather-lined gardening or work gloves, bring ’em!

We will have a light snack, a jug to fill up your water bottle, gloves, and plenty of tools.

Where to Meet:

We will meet at the NE entrance of Westcrest Park, at the intersection of 5th Ave SW and SW Cloverdale Street in Southwest Seattle. This is also known as the “Westcrest dogpark back gate” on Google. (Please note: the site map on this page gives a less precise location of where to meet.)

Where to Park:
We are meeting at the parking area for the dog park, and additional parking is found on Cloverdale.
