|Path to Donkey Creek ( to the right) from Austin Estuary|
|Path behind History Harbor Museum from Donkey Creek.|
From Hwy 16 take the Wollochet exit North down the hill towards the historical waterfront (Wollochet changing to Pioneer) just like when we went to the Skansie Netshed. It will dead end at a flashing red light (Harborview dr).Turn left on Harborview and follow it along the water way until you see the gas station like car service repair place and the History Harbor Museum on the right and the Christmas store, Thai House restaurant, ect on the left. The road forks to the right (or goes forward) which flanks 2 of the 3 sides to Donkey creek. Fork to the right and find a place to park around those 3 streets surrounding the park. Restrooms are in Donkey creek.
Austin Estuary is just before the fork and businesses on the right, behind the museum. You can also park on the street leading up to the Estuary (before the right fork). Austin Estuary may be accessed through Donkey creek, a stairwell off the fork in the road which takes you down towards the museum (the walking path connecting the 2 parks is behind the museum access thru the parking lot) or off harborside drive. Look for the lil red truck... and the white shirted artist painting in the straw hat.
For all you GPS travelers, the address for Donkey Creek Park is 8714 North Harorview Drive.
