Come join WABI Weekday Walkers on the third Wednesday of June (June 21) at 9 am to walk Marine View Park in Normandy  Park.  What better way to celebrate the solstice than this  classic summer walk through cool forest, ending on the beach.  Normandy Park’s southernmost park is on Marine View Drive between SW 208th Street and SW 211th Street (see map). The walk will be about an hour on both paved and dirt trails. Be prepared for mud, steep elevation, and stairs. Normandy Park has done a great job of constructing a paved, switchbacked trail, ending in a sturdy staircase with beautiful Sound views.
