There are a couple of new additions to Schmitz Park, signs encouraging appropriate use:Located at the SW Hines and the Admiral/Stevens entrances to the park, they are a reminder to visitors to treat the park gently and with respect, as “The Forest Floor is Alive”. Schmitz Park, at 53 acres, includes some beautiful riparian habitat created by Schmitz Park Creek, and it is home to one last stands of old growth forest left in Seattle.
The interpretive signs were designed and donated to Schmitz Park by artist/writer/designer Denise Dahn. She is a Co-founder and Director of Seattle Nature Alliance and owner of Dahn Design, LLC. The signs were installed by Seattle Parks and Recreation, with guidance from Friends of Schmitz Preserve.
