Seattle's only riverfront neighborhood, South Park has a long history. Starting as a neighborhood of Italian and Japanese farmers who brought their produce to the Pike Place Market, South Park evolved to house workers in the nearby industrial districts during World War II.
Today it is a neighborhood experiencing moderate growth with young families and couples mixed in with the older established South Park families.
Small convenience stores, several wonderful restaurants, one fantastic pub are all within walking distance. Larger grocery stores are just a five-ten minute drive away.
South Park is a great neighborhood to walk in, very residential, with several city parks, including one with access to the Duwamish River.
We are a couple with a very wonderful dog, Shaun, who just purchased our new home in early 2009. We both work for the government, and are very environmentally conscious.
We love to travel, having just completed a near-month long trip to Spain staying and traveling with friends. Some of whom just stayed with us the year before.
We take one long trip a year and several shorter ones, (as often as once a month) in order to retain our sanity, :-)
Willing to exchange pet-sitting duties and cars as well!!
