Cormorant Cove

3701 Beach Dr SW Seattle, WA 98116

To reveal the shoreline, a 12′ high seawall and tons of landfill was removed to recreate a beach cove for intertidal habitat and beach access. The site was landscaped with native, salt & drought tolerant plants. A 22′ diameter mosaic patio overlooks Puget Sound. Artist Lezlie Jane’s inlaid tiles depict a center cormorant, shoreline facts, project history and silhouettes of local waterfowl. An 18 foot long bronze handrail of waves and Cormorants highlights the access into the park.
