I couldn’t help myself yesterday to go find the Pump House for the steam plant. I was driving down East Marginal Way on my way between Estate Sales and took this small detour in the rain. 8th Avenue South was not as easy to find as I thought. It angles off of East Marginal and now I know why I couldn’t find it using Google Maps.
Here is the view back to the West side of the river and the park commemorating the old 8th Street bridge. The post with details can be found at Bridge & Steam Plant History.

The pump house is not in the best repair with paint of different shades on it covering up graffiti and tags. Not surprised when you look at the sad state of this little river access park. I searched to see who the park belongs to on both Seattle and Port of Seattle web sites. Neither mention it but it must belong to someone. There is a sign holder, a bench and art. The sign holder is not plain either. It has two fish in the design.
To see more of my Duwamish Adventure I have a directory post that links all of the pieces together. You can find that post here – My Duwamish Adventure Directory
