THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF MAPLE LEAF
The area around Roosevelt Avenue and 90th Street is the main business district in Maple Leaf. There, you’ll find much to keep you occupied. Walk up Cloud City Coffee for breakfast or a sandwich, and you’ll be equally likely to find some sort of community meeting taking place. Browse the kitschy store next door, Maxine’s—part florist, part gift shop. Roosevelt Ale House is a great place to stop for happy hour, or try Snappy Dragon for delicious Chinese fare. If you have kids, there are a few must-sees that your whole family will enjoy. One of the lesser-known treasures of the neighborhood is the Northwest Puppet Center, which houses a museum, a stage for plays, and holds classes for puppet enthusiasts of all ages. After you’ve exhausted all they have to offer, stop by Math ‘n’ Stuff and feast your eyes on their selection of games, puzzles, toys, and science kits. Run off some energy at the relatively new Maple Leaf Reservoir Park. The 16 acres of park land offer a viewpoint of both Mount Rainier and Lake Washington, a series of rain gardens, shelter, sports court, ball fields, and a play area boasting both a zip line and children’s garden.
MAPLE LEAF PARK & RESERVOIR
About an easy 10 minutes stroll down the street, the Maple Leaf reservoir was completed in 1910 with the purpose of creating a reservoir for residential and commercial water use. In 2009 the city began plans to move the reservoir underground. This was part of a city wide plan to replace all open reservoirs with underground structures in order to improve the quality and security of the water supply and provide new public open spaces on reservoir lids throughout Seattle. In 2013 the 16-acre park was completed.
