Disused Mooring

Magnuson Park began life as the Sand Point Naval Reserve. Since then, bits and pieces of it have left federal ownership and most is now run by the city parks department.

Here is a large and capable wartime dock, adjacent to the NOAA land at the north end of the park. NOAA keeps a ship or two of their own docked on their side, and they're big enough to require the four lift bridges along the ship to open at their request (even during commuting hours).

It's now just the edge of a parking lot.
