Sequim parks Sequim is home to several beautiful city parks, where you can find a nice picnic area or a quiet place to meditate, a spot to let your dog run or watch your kids play. Carrie Blake Park, at 202 N. Blake Ave., is home to several yearly events. New this year is the Sequim Lavender Festival (p. 62). The park has softball fields, a playground, an off-leash dog park with an agility course, a picnic shelter and a skate park. Located just north of Carrie Blake Park, the Water Reuse Demonstration Park, at 500 N. Blake Ave., offers a fishing pond for kids up to 14 years old. There also is James Center for Performing Arts, the Albert Haller Playfields, a .425mile walking trail around the playfields that links to the Olympic Discovery Trail, and the Terrace Gardens that are maintained by

the volunteer Terrace Gardeners. Established in 1951 by the Sequim Prairie Garden Club, Pioneer Memorial Park, at 387 E. Washington St., is a lovely 4-acre park and arboretum in downtown Sequim. Observe the newly restored waterfall and pool and then proceed to view beautiful established trees, shrubs and flowers. This park also is home to historical artifacts such as a pioneer log cabin, gravestone markers and a totem pole (currently undergoing restoration). Come to picnic, walk your dog or just enjoy the tranquil lawn and gardens. Located in the center of the park, the garden clubhouse is available to rent.
