Ronald Bog Park

Text and photos by Wayne Pridemore

Stopped at the Ronald Bog Park one morning and took a few photos of the local ducks that stay there year round.

During the 1940s and 1950s the area was privately owned and peat moss was harvested for the commercial market.

In 1974 King County bought the acreage and created the park that later was given to the city of Shoreline.

There is a small parking lot for the park just west of the freeway on the south side of 175th St. It is a good place to visit and view many forms of wildlife.

Enjoyed your bog-duck picture. The "turtle-log on the Meridian side of the bog is very-fun also when it is loaded with sun worshipping turtles. Having lived in Shoreline for many years and was part of a group that saved the bog from development it does my heart good to see people enjoy it. Many people were involved in the "save".
We were referred to as "kitchen activist " by the King County council, but call us whatever we did not mind and are very grateful the bog was saved. The Pacific Northwest Conifer Arboretum, which I believe is a Rotary project, is a delightful addition to the neighborhood at the bog.
