Công Viên Lakeridge và Nhánh Sông Taylor (Seattle)

HistoryLink.org Essay 3120 : Printer-Friendly Format

Công Viên Lakeridge chiếm hơn 35 mẫu đất khu vực Nhánh Sông Taylor và Thung Lũng Núi Deadhorse thuộc vùng đông nam Seattle. Công viên này nằm về phía nam của giao lộ 68th Avenue S và Rainier Avenue S trong phạm vi của thành phố Seattle. Nhánh Sông Taylor là nhánh sông lớn thứ tư tại Seattle. Nhánh sông này được đặt tên theo Taylor Mill, một xưởng cưa trong thế kỷ thứ mười chín trên bờ Hồ Washington. Thung lũng núi mà nhánh sông chảy ra hồ được đặt tên này sau khi một con ngựa thường hay đến vùng này bị chết trong hẻm núi. Nhà xây dựng E.S. Goodwin đã vẽ sơ đồ khu vực Lakeridge vào thập niên 1920 và Thành Phố Seattle đã thiết lập Công Viên Lakeridge tại Thung Lũng Núi Deadhorse vào thập niên 1940. Trong những năm gần đây, công viên, thung lũng núi, và nhánh sông là những địa điểm của chương trình phục hồi các nhánh sông ở thành phố nhằm mục đích thu hút cá hồi trở về đẻ trứng.
