Aparkolypse: Tall Tree Park

Down a short, wooded trail from Conifer View Park, or around a few corners for those of you driving, is Tall Tree Park. We'll let you evaluate how creatively named this park is.

Potential Google Map Weirdness

Up until last year, the park was listed on Bothell's website as "Conifer View IV Park" and that's reflected on Google Maps. Apparently the sign has always said Tall Tree Park. The address 19630 89th Pl NE, Bothell, WA 98011 is correct. I've submitted an edit to Google Maps.


You can park in the cul-de-sac, which we're sure the neighbors love. We walked over from Conifer View Park along a short half-paved/half dirt trail. We happened to be there during blackberry season and had a nice snack.

You won't find much in the way of infrastructure here. There are a table or two, a smaller grassy area, and some narrow trails going off into the woods we didn't really explore because of time constraints.


The playground takes up a good chunk of the park. We and our friends found plenty to climb, wing, slide, and spin on.


Mainly a destination for neighborhood locals and weirdos who blog about parks, Tall Tree Park is another beautiful Bothell park, hidden away from traffic noise and commercial distractions.
