Going Green in Bellevue

By Linda Tancs

To say that Bellevue, Washington, is green is an understatement. With nearly 100 parks, the cityscape offers lots of green in between. Even in the heart of town lies a 20-acre oasis featuring a one-half mile promenade, bordered by a double row of shade trees, and a stepped canal leading to the 240-foot wide waterfall that cascades into a reflecting pond. A 10-acre lawn area invites picnickers to dine amidst Bellevue’s skyline with Mount Rainier in the background. Located at 10201 NE Fourth Street, the park is open from dawn to 11 p.m.

An off-the-grid camp can now be added to your Washington state list of camps. Cowiche Camp is underway in Cowiche, WA., within minutes of Yakima’s premium wine region.

The existing cabin will be renovated, glam-style, by owner Rebekah Gregory. Rebekah was noticed by HGTV’s producers (Rate-My-Space) for her decorating skills.

Platforms with wooden floors, for canvas tents, are coming soon! Reservations are being accepted now for dates after August 1, 2011.

The final phase will include a large glam tree house!
