Parking Issues at Shilshole

As we know, the parking has been a mess here at Shilshole.  With the Mayor’s continued closure of the Golden Gardens parking lot and Golden Gardens Drive, the overflow has adversely affected us here in the marina.  The marina manager, Jo, and operations supv., Dale, have added extra security at the north end, have closed off several entrances and are working hard to finalize the ticketing and towing of illegally parked vehicles in our lot.  Unfortunately, it is delayed at the Port of Seattle main office and needs our input to facilitate the approval.  Here is the contact info of the Port of Seattle Commissioners.

Partial Opening of Golden Gardens Parking

Seattle Parks have announced the opening of the south parking lot at Golden Gardens Park. This should help alleviate the terrible overflow that we have experience in both the marina lot and on the street.  read more here:

Golden Gardens Drive (the road up the hill) needs to be opened up as soon as possible as it is a key evacuation route from the marina in case of fire or earthquake.  Please contact SDOT at to let them know your concerns.  Thank you!

Golden Gardens Drive Evacuation Route

As you know, Golden Gardens Drive up the hill from the park is closed 24/7 until further notice  due to Mayor Durkan’s Safe Streets Initiative.  That is fine for upland neighborhoods that have access on all sides of their homes, but for those of us here at Shilshole and the Sunset West Condos, plus all the visitors to the park; Golden Garden’s Drive is an essential route of escape in case of any local emergency/disaster like a marina fire, a train derailment or earthquake/tsunami/landslide.

We need to get this road re-opened.  Please express your concerns to the Seattle Dept. of Transportation at

…and check out emergency prep at Shilshole Prepares
