Kelsey Creek Farm


Open 365 days a year, Kelsey Creek Community Park features 150 acres of forest, meadows and wetlands in the heart of Bellevue, which offer a glimpse of this city's rural past.

The park features hiking and jogging trails, picnic areas, a playground, wetlands, open grassy areas, creeks and forests. The historic Fraser Cabin sits on the hill adjacent to the park's historic dairy barns. The Eastside Heritage Center hosts drop-in programs for visitors, and the city offers a number of log cabin programs.

A reservable picnic shelter is located south of the parking lot and picnic tables are located throughout the park. Pathways meander through the open lawn areas. Sit on one of the many benches and take in the breath-taking views. The ridge to the east of the farm harbors a beautiful forest of big-leaf maples, alders, black cottonwoods and vine maples (brilliant in fall!) with scattered Douglas firs, cedars and spruce. Rivulets trickle down the hillside, creating a moist forest floor lush with ferns and a large variety of shrubs and herbaceous plants.

A visit to Kelsey Creek Farm is like stepping back in history. The farm's mission is to preserve the site's natural resources and share its historic farm environment with the community through education; provide free and/or affordable programs, activities and events; and support and interpret this unique and treasured public farm.

The farm's two historic barns sit prominently on the crest of a hill, overlooking the shallow valleys to each side. These barns, listed on the Washington State Heritage Barn Register, were once home to the Twin Valley Dairy.
