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

Golden Gardens Drive Closed

Mayor Durkan has closed Golden Gardens Drive (the road up the hill from the park) to all vehicles.  Since the Golden  Gardens parking lot continues to remain closed to the public, even more people will be parking on the street and in the marina parking lot and the only vehicle access to the park will be from the south end of Seaview Ave.

Updated Shilshole Procedures/Closures

Shilshole tenants just received this notice via email which will help explain the closure of some of the parking lot entrances and the plaza, etc….

From the marina staff..

We all want go get outside on these nice days, but according to the governor: “If you need to take a car, it’s probably too far. Don’t recreate with those outside your household. Practice strong social distancing and stay at least 6-feet apart when getting fresh air.”

We are immediately implementing the following measures at SBM to support Governor Jay Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” emergency order.

• Continuing to clean all public areas two times a day.
• Non-liveaboard moorage customers should only visit SBM if your trip is essential.
• Closing public access to the A-Pier and X Dock.
• Placing partial restrictions on access to the parking lot. All vehicle entrances and exits will remain locked except for those immediately north and south of the SBM main building.
• Controlling pedestrian access to the SBM promenade.
• Limiting access to picnic tables and benches along the pedestrian thoroughfare.
• Closing public restrooms at SBM promenade.

Operational staff are on-site and can assist with normal operational requests. Please be patient with staff members as we exercise critical measures of social distancing. Thank you for your patience in this challenging time.
