Located on Portage Bay adjacent to the University of Washington, Seattle's newest park offers views of the University Bridge and I-5's Ship Canal Bridge. Fritz Hedges Waterway Park, named after longtime Seattle Parks and Recreation employee Fredrick "Fritz" Hedges, provides water access for hand-carried boats, shoreline restoration, open lawn space for passive recreation. Interpretive elements are planned that will tie into one of two historical narratives - the use of the Portage Bay Trail by Native Americans and more recent maritime history.
