T107 Park, 4700 West Marginal Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106

Owner: Port of Seattle

T107 (named for a previously planned port terminal) is an important archaeological, cultural and historical site that sits on the shores of the original Duwamish River. This 8 acre park was created when artifacts were found during excavation by the Port. The tribe and the community fought to preserve the area, and today it now stands as a wildlife habitat and a lovely public access site that overlooks the only original bends in the river.

T-107 is an important habitat node, or oasis, where returning salmon and other wildlife can rest, feed and escape from predators… we want to keep it this way, and make it even better by joining a volunteer habitat restoration.

Also known as Terminal 107, this portion of the riverbank was originally the construction site for a marine terminal. In 1977, artifacts from the Duwamish Tribe’s village of Basket Hat yee-LEH-khood were found during the development process, which halted all construction. The Duwamish Estuary covered the area from the base of West Seattle hills to the base of Beacon Hill filled with bountiful varieties of fish, shellfish, and plants providing the Duwamish Tribe with food and other uses. It was a large powerful meandering river with extensive tidal flats and wildlife, when pioneer John Pike officially bought the land from the U.S. government in 1860, soon after the Treaty of Point Elliott, 1855. Local shipyards built fishing boats for European immigrants until the resource diminished.
The park provides walking paths throughout the park like setting with viewing points of the river, Kellogg Island and the last remaining remnant of the original river before it was channelized. It’s a favorite stop for cyclists along the Duwamish Trail. It also provides a convenient launching point for kayaks and canoes with a short carry from the parking lot.
