Kenmore invites locals who enjoy exploring the natural outdoors to participate in the city’s free guided nature walks at Wallace Swamp Creek Park.

On the second Monday of each month, April through October, volunteer Linda Phillips will host a one and one-half to two hour-long guided tour and explore two miles of paved and primitive trails through the 25-acre park. Tours will focus on the plants, animals, and birds that are frequently seen in the park. The city recommends attendees wear appropriate clothing and bring a love for the outdoors.

Tours start at 9 a.m. at the kiosk at Wallace Swamp Creek Park parking lot, 19851 73rd Avenue NE, Kenmore. Participants under the age of 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent.

For more information, contact Volunteer and Events supervisor, Shelby Krogh, at skrogh@kenmorewa.gov or call 425-398-8900.
