Carkeek Park is Seattle's premier spot to watch spawning salmon. Every fall from mid-October to mid-December, hundreds of Coho and Chum return to creeks that weave through this urban oasis just off NW 110th Street.

Another notable attraction is City Light's solar project, funded by City Light customers' generous contributions to Seattle Green Power. It generates roughly half the electricity for Carkeek's Environmental Learning Center (ELC), lighting on the grounds, and other needs. At times, the utility meter can be seen spinning backwards.
