Pigeon Point Park, SW Genesee St. & 20th Ave SW, Seattle WA 98106
Owner: Seattle Parks & Recreation
Pigeon Point Park is part of the West Duwamish Greenbelt which is the city’s largest remaining contiguous forest covering over 800 acres. The greenbelt runs for over four miles along the length of a steep hill slope from the Delridge area in West Seattle to the Duwamish waterway. It is dominated by forests regenerating following logging during the past century. Pigeon Point is located on the furthermost northern end of the greenbelt, overlooking Elliot Bay and the mouth of the Duwamish River.
The West Duwamish Greenbelt forest is a second and third growth forest consisting mainly of big leaf maple, alder and cottonwood, with very few native shrubs.
At over 800 acres of forested public land, the West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest.
