Take the 45th St. exit off I5 at the University of Washington.
a) turn east on 45th. go a quarter mile to Brooklyn Ave. NE. go south to Northlake way. go west along the lake til you get to the park. look for big rusty crack towers and trees.
b) turn west on 45th. go about a half mile up the hill to Wallingford Ave. N. go South to the Gasworks Kiteshop on N 34 St. turn east and go a block then south on Burke Ave. N you are at the park.
From the North, take the Hawks Prairie / Marvin Road exit, go East to Pacific Avenue, then South to the Park.
To get there, from the South, take the 109 exit aka as Martin way. Upon exiting you south bounders turn left onto Martin Way. Those traveling North turn right onto Martin Way and for those of you that can't tell your right from your left, no matter if you are going north or south, head due East on Martin Way.
Now go approx. 1 mile to Carpenter Rd. ( historical name, Carney Rd SE). It will be the 3rd signal. At that point turn right. The rest of you, and you know who I'm talking to, head South. At the VERY next signal down the road a piece I want you to go left on Lacy Blvd.SE, and you other people can just head east again, so there.
The park and community ctr. will be about a mile or so, give or take 3/4 of a mile or so, on your right, or once again for you others, on the south side of Lacy Blvd. SE.
The field the Whidby Island Kite Festival is held at is a bit farther north on the park parade grounds amid the park housing. Winds here are geneally good if they are from the west, down the Straight of Juan de Fuca.

If the weather is still cold or raining, the best way to go is to take the 45th street exit at the University of Washington, then get down to the road along the north side of the ship canal between Lake Washington and Puget Sound. Hmm, That's N. Northlake Way. Follow that to Freemont at the bridge, turn north a block then west along Leary Way. Follow that to where it runs into N.W. Market in Ballard. West on Market til it does a short sharp corner and turns into NW 54th St. and turns into Seaview Ave. N.W. This runs along the Sound behind Shilshole Marina. If you follow it to the north end it runs right into Golden Gardens Park. This route is quite flat and easy to navigate in adverse conditions. Another way to get there is take the N. 85th St. exit of I-5 going west. Follow that all the way across town to the cliff that it winds down and under the railroad tracks at the bottom. Golden Gardens will be directly on your right. If there's any ice still around, this route has a number of very steep hills along the way, and if it's really wet there's the possibility of the road sliding on the cliff and/or being closed. If you get stuck at the top of the cliff and N. 85th, you can turn south on 32nd Ave. N.W. and follow that all the way down to N.W. 54th on the Ship Canal. Then just go west and north along the Sound. -- Seafair Pirates Dump Ganja Into San Francisco Water Supply Nobody Notices -- Brian Johnsen firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.eskimo.com/~johnsen/nfka/
There are several ways of getting to the Fort Worden Kitemakers Conference. None of them are terrificly easy, but that's part of the charm of the place. Seattle To Port Townsend: (includes I5 and I90) Follow the signs to the downtown Ferry Dock and take the boat to Bainbridge Island. There is a boat to Bremerton from the same dock, so make sure you get into the right loading group. There are signs to direct you on the dock. You can still get there from Bremerton by going North on State Route 3, but it takes a bit longer. On Bainbridge, the ferry dock puts you directly on State Route 305. Follow this off the island and past Poulsbo to the State Route 3 interchange and take 3 North to the Hood Canal Bridge and State Route 104. A few miles past the Hood Canal Bridge there will be a prominent sign directing you to Port Townsend on an uphill grade. Follow this route through Chimacum, past Irondale and a small aircraft field to Port Townsend. for Fort Flagler follow the signs from Irondale or Chimacum. You can also drive to Edmonds and catch the Edmonds/Kingston Ferry. Follow the signs to the Hood Canal Bridge (about 8 miles) and then follow the instructions above. From Tacoma: From 1-5, take #16 north, across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Stay on #16 until you come to #3, and take #3 north. Continue on #3 across the Hood Canal Bridge, which will put you on #104 going west. When you reach #101, go north briefly, and take #20 north to Port Townsend. From the South: Take 1-5 to Olympia, and follow #101 north along the west side of Hood Canal. Take #20 to Port Townsend. AS YOU ENTER PORT TOWNSEND: Turn left at the first light, and follow the signs to Fort Worden. It's north of town. You'll be zigzagging through residential areas. Take the main street north to its end. Turn right and follow the residential streets along the bluff. They should dead-end at Fort Worden. Enter the park; Building 204 is straight ahead on the right.
Elma Track Field In case of rain: Betty's Cafe, downtown just east of the stoplight is good, and a bit cheaper than the other breakfast choices. Lunch is usually at the Mexican restaurant just west of the light. The field where we met last *may* be covered with PeeWees. In that case, there's another field on the other side of the property ( farther West ). You get to the First field by taking the 2nd Elma exit at the Texaco and Exxon Stations. Turn North from the Freeway, and then take the first left ( West ). Go straight till you hit the field. In case of PeeWees, go North around the property.
