Tracy Owen Station at Log Boom Park is a 3.9-acre park that provides access to over 1,200 lineal feet of shoreline on Kenmore’s Lake Washington waterfront. This shoreline was where early loggers once operated mills and anchored their log booms, clusters of floating logs enclosed within cables. Some of the old pilings from as early as 1902 are still visible. The current 600-foot-long public fishing pier was built over original pilings. The park also features a playground, restrooms, picnic tables, daytime moorage and access to the Burke Gilman Trail. Kayak and paddleboard rentals are available during the summertime.

The Kenmore History Path is a must-see attraction at this park. Installed in 2008, its eleven interpretive signs present the rich history of the area from its geological beginnings through Kenmore’s incorporation as a city in 1998. In 1987 the park added Tracy Owen Station to its name to honor Tracy Owen, longtime Kenmore resident and late King County Councilman.

Follow the Burke-Gilman Trail East to 68th Avenue NE. Turn right and proceed south, over the bridge to the intersection of Inglewood Road NE and NE 170th Street. The entrance to Inglewood Golf Club is on the right.
