Another New Park in our District 4 at Portage Bay

This past weekend I visited the brand-new park that opened at Portage Bay in our District 4. It’s called Fritz Hedges Waterway Park, named after Frederick “Fritz” Hedges who was a long-term Parks professional with the City of Seattle. The new park is located at 1117 Northeast Boat Street. That’s east of the University Bridge at the southern point of the University District, just a block from the Agua Verde restaurant. I saw many families with their children and other residents enjoying this lovely new connection to our waterfront, thanks to our Seattle Parks Department.
