Madison Park


Madison Park is a neighborhood in east central Seattle, named after the city park at the foot of E. Madison Street on the Lake Washington shore. It is bounded on the east by Lake Washington, on the south by the intersection of Lake Washington Boulevard E. and 39th Avenue E., on the west by Lake Washington Boulevard E., and on the north by Union Bay. Washington Park and the private Broadmoor community and golf course are subunits within Madison Park.

The Washington Park Arboretum is a hidden gem on the shores of Lake Washington. Jointly managed by UW and the City of Seattle, its 230 acres are a dynamic assortment of plants found nowhere else. A Japanese Garden is located at the south end of the Arboretum.

Madison Park is a lovely grassy park on the shores of Lake Washington, south of the Evergreen Point Bridge. The park features a bathhouse and swimming beach that is patrolled by lifeguards during the summer.

The neighborhood is home to some quaint shopping and restaurants. The area offers a beautiful view to the East of the floating bridge and the Cascades beyond.
