Golden Gardens closing at 10 pm

Seattle Parks has (finally) moved the closing time at Golden Gardens from 11:30 up to 10pm.

This time change is intended to help mitigate an increase in public safety issues and illegal activity at the park, including acts of violence, excessive noise violations, illegal fires, illegal parking, unpermitted events, and blocked access for emergency vehicles.

4th of July fireworks by boat

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

The 4th is only a couple weeks away and falls on a Sunday.  This means people will have a long weekend to get away from the dock and cruise locally. Some popular displays to see by boat are:

Poulsbo   (on July 3rd) currently still cancelled but keep checking their site, as more and more venues are opening up.  The homes around Liberty Bay and maybe the Casino will have their shows


Quartermaster Harbor-Vashon Island (private sponsored show over inner harbor – here is a 2016 video), there is no confirmation that this show is still on

Lake Union-Seattle

Tacoma Waterfront

Everett Waterfront

Des Moines waterfront…still cancelled

Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor  …this site states that they will have fireworks

Have you ever been sailboat racing?

Many boaters at Shilshole race their own boats or crew for others. There are major (all day) races almost every weekend during the spring and fall and more relaxed (1-2 hour) races during the summer.  If you have never tried racing, you are missing out on a great way to improve your sailing skills; which will greatly enhance your cruising -you’ll sail more efficiently,  sail faster and do less motoring.

We have a couple local clubs that give you an opportunity, with no experience or cost as crew, to get out on the water and work as a team. It’s as simple as showing up on time, having warm dry clothes and lifejacket, listening to the skipper and the more experienced crew, and showing an interest. It’s not a party; its a fun, competitive team sport.

Check out their web sites for how to get involved…
