Located in the fancy pants neighborhood of Gleneagle Estates in Arlington, Wa is Forest Trail Park. I had high expectations for this park due to its distinguished location, but found myself a little underwhelmed.
There is off-street parking, a basketball hoop, small playground and a “forest trail” that ends abruptly at the saddle of a cul-de-sac. I was in the mood for more of a walk this day, so I continued onto the sidewalk and the road eventually brought me back to my car. It was nice to see all the nice homes with immaculate landscaping and watching the hustle and bustle of retirees driving their golf carts to and from the nearby golf course. However, it’s an adventure I wouldn’t go out of my way to do again.
