Cecil Moses Memorial Park, 11099 27th Ave S, Tukwila, WA 98168
Owner: King County Parks
Cecil Moses Park is located in a key transition zone for young salmon moving downstream to Puget Sound with an extensive tidal mixing of fresh and salt waters which allows the young salmon to adapt from the fresh water of the Green-Duwamish River to the salt water of Puget Sound. This restored habitat includes a fenced-off slough and marsh created to increase habitat and plant diversity. Invasive plant removal and native planting to improve habitat continues.
- Blue Herons can be seen at low tide feeding on fish among the rocks,
- Bald Eagles nest just down river in the large trees on the west bank,
- Salmon in their juvenile stage rest in the inlets on both sides of the river during their spring journey to Puget Sound, while as adults they can be seen returning in September through January.
- Depending on the time of year, many other bird species can be seen as well.
