On June 26, 1984, The Seattle Times reports that the teen crowd has shifted its scene east from Carkeek Park in Northwest Seattle to Magnuson Park on Sand Point. Magnuson Park overlooking Lake Washington has become the site of cruising, boozing, and hanging out in the warm summer air, the paper reports.
