Skip on over to Log Boom Park
This 3.9-acre park provides access to over 1200 lineal feet of shoreline on Kenmore’s Lake Washington waterfront. The public dock is a fantastic place to watch the seaplanes land, toss out a line for fishing or simply enjoy the sunset. Other features include the Kenmore History Path, playground area, picnic tables, access to the Burke-Gilman Trail, daytime moorage, and restroom facility. The park was renamed Tracy Owen Station after the late King County Councilmember, Tracy Owen.
The park was closed in 2021 for renovations and reopened to the public on Thursday, June 30, 2022. New amenities include a sandy beach and lake access area, water access for hand-powered watercraft, a picnic shelter (currently not accepting reservations), a boat rental building, public artworks including the signature “Flume” sculpture by Jennifer Dixon, seating, and an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible concrete path promenade. A local concessionaire, WhatsSup Stand Up Paddle and Surf, will also be on site this summer renting hand-powered watercraft such as kayaks and paddleboards.

Most smartphones come equipped with the ability to read QR codes, or free apps can be downloaded from your cell phone provider’s App Store.
