Luminaria Walk at Meadowbrook Pond

The Friends of Meadowbrook Pond invite everyone out to an evening of lights at the Luminaria Walk on Saturday, December 5 at 5:30 PM.  The luminaria are paper lanterns with a candle set in sand, to illuminate the walkways along the Meadowbrook Pond.  While technically not a park, the Meadowbrook Pond, a Seattle Public Utilities system of floodwater control, is a natural area which is open to the public to enjoy.

Meadowbrook Pond is located on the east side of 35th Ave NE directly across the street from the Meadowbrook Community Center at 10517 35th Ave NE.  Entry points to the pond are also located on 38th Ave NE and on NE 105th Street.

Major improvements at Meadowbrook were completed in 2015 including a bridge structure at 35th Ave NE so that the south branch of Thornton Creek now flows under the road unrestricted by drainage pipes.  A far larger flood plain area was created on the east side of 35th Ave NE which is called The Confluence, the place where the north and south branches of Thornton Creek converge.
