Outdoor Recreation Boeing Creek/Shoreview Park
Shoreview Park features a baseball field with bleachers, side-by-side dirt soccer fields, six tennis courts, a playground, restrooms and even an off-leash area. It has plenty of parking and a beautiful view of the Olympic Mountains, and is less than 1mile from SCC. Down a wooded trail is Hidden Lake and neighboring Boeing Creek Park. A brisk walk from Shoreline Community College is Boeing Creek Park, where students, faculty or any nature enthusiasts may wander on paved trails and enjoy some peace and quiet. The park's name is a little deceiving as the namesake creek is a mere trickle, but Hidden Lake is only a half-mile walk away. Part of a Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary, Boeing Creek Park has a few picnic tables and a wide variety of trees. Both the park and the Stormwater Detention Facility were dedicated in November, 2008. Features include: • Playgrounds • Restrooms • Baseball & softball fields • Soccer field • Tennis courts • Wooded natural area with trails • Creek and lake access (no lifeguard on duty) • Picnic tables & benches • Cascading water feature
