Diva Dwellings: Green Built Judkins Park Townhouse
Diva Dwellers: The Originals! Isaak and Rassamee
Judkins Park is the perfect neighborhood for the first-time home buyer. This walkable hood is close to so many parks, greenbelts, schools, and neighborhood businesses that it is almost like it’s own self-contained town in the middle of the city. Judkins Park is an inclusive and welcoming place for everyone. This is a very diverse neighborhood with every type of community represented within it, but also super accessible to public transportation, highways, and other hip hoods like Columbia City, Beacon Hill, and Capitol Hill.
Live: For a relatively small neighborhood, Judkins Park has more than it’s fair share of parks. Judkins Park features playfields, picnic areas, and a wading pool. Jimi Hendrix Park and Sam Smith Park flank I-90 just to the south and east.
Work: The proximity to the downtown core, I-5 and I-90, and the Link Light Rail make this a commuter’s dream. The 2100 Building, home to 12 Seattle nonprofits and multiple meeting rooms is located in the southern-most tip of the neighborhood.
Play: Runners and cyclists take note! The I-90 Trail is an extension of the Mountains to Sound Greenway and an excellent running and cycling thoroughfare through South Seattle, and across the I-90 bridge.
