"Wilburton Hill Park" Bellevue Off The Beaten Path Tip by glabah
Bellevue Off The Beaten Path: 8 reviews and 18 photos
At first glance, the majority of this park, just down the street from the Bellevue Botanical Gardens, appears to be highly developed in nature: several playgrounds, and several sports fields. However, the park also contains a fair amount of woodlands with a few trails (including a short portion of the Lake to Lake Trail) passing through them.
If you happen to have visited the Botanical Garden, and want to get more of a walk offered by the trails in the garden, consider walking east on the Lake to Lake Trail into this park. Due to the number of sports fields it may not be a quiet day, but on the other hand if it is a school day and it is daylight hours chances are the kids are all in school. Under those conditions it is likely to be a quiet day over here, at least until school gets out.
The Lake to Lake Trail passes through the park by running along the edge of one of the sports fields, and then plunges into the forests. Smaller trails run through the park connecting to this trail, both in the forest and along the sports fields. The Lake to Lake trail is paved through this park, but many of the other trails are narrow dirt or gravel pathways.
This park may also serve as a good place to find overflow parking should you come to the Bellevue Botanical Garden and find it is a popular day and all the parking places are taken.
How to Get Here: Essentially the instructions are the same as you would use for the Bellevue Botanical Gardens except the park is located slightly east of the gardens. If you come by public transit, visit the gardens first and walk through the gardens on the Lake to Lake trail and trails within the gardens rather than the trail that is right next to the road.
