“It was November--the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds,

deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines." - L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

This park opens great opportunities for active families, because here hikers will find the access to Cedar River Trail that follows an old railroad from downtown Renton to King County’s Landsburg Park, and this trail stretches along beautiful and scenic Cedar River.

The Cedar River provides natural surrounding for a variety of wildlife. The river provides habitat for anadromous fish such as Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, Sockeye salmon, and Steelhead trout. Cedar River Chinook salmon is currently listed as threatened. The Cedar River is where the largest run of sockeye salmon in the lower 48 states begins.

To learn about the journey that happens every year you can in different places, but most spectacular is at Cedar River Park. Trained group of volunteers will tell visitors and guests about the history of the Cedar River Salmon Journey, they will tell about the life cycle of the salmon and about the needs of the wildlife.

At Cedar River Park visitors will have the opportunity to see sockeye salmon that are removed from the hatchery.
