WHERE WE PLAY


Fort Dent Park , in Tukwila, between Seattle and the SeaTac Airport:
the ONLY public park with an exclusive cricket field in the entire US Northwest.

BY CAR : From downtown Seattle, Take I-5 South to Exit 156 (Interurban Avenue):
take a left (drive South on Interurban), and a left again at Fort Dent Way, and
drive across bridge into the Park. The cricket field is on your right.
The trip should take about 30 minutes from downtown Seattle by car.

BY BUS: Take the South-bound #150 (to Auburn via Southcenter) from downtown Seattle,
at any tunnel station on Saturday, or on 3rd Avenue on Sunday.
Bus will stop at crossing of Interurban Avenue and Fort Dent Way,
and you can walk across the road and into the park via the bridge.
The trip should take about 45 minutes from downtown Seattle, for $1.00 each way, on weekends.
The #150 bus goes every half hour on weekends, all day and into late night.
There is a convenient bus stop on Interurban Avenue just outside the Park,
to catch the North-bound #150 bus for returning to Seattle.
