Description: Northacres is a small neighborhood park with one of the only stands of old douglas firs remaining in North Seattle. Its best feature is a short network of trails winding through the woods. These trails continue within the off-leash area in the northeast corner of the park. There used to be a substantial amount of drug use and other illicit activity in the overgrown sections of the park, but the off-leash area has helped to deter crime and clean it up. On the west side of the park by the main entrance there is a grassy area with picnic tables, play area, and wading pool. A ballfield by the southeast entrance gets frequent use in the summertime.
Directions: From I-5N, take NE 130th St. exit (Exit 174). Head west across I-5. Turn left at the first light onto 1st. The main park entrance is on your left. Or continue to the stop sign, turn left at NE 125th St. Turn left on 3rd and there is parking for the ballfield on your right, or go straight ahead to the round-a-bout.
