Kiwanis Memorial Preserve Park is one block east of Discovery Park in the Magnolia neighborhood. This park was named the city's first Wildlife Sanctuary in 2010. It was the home to Seattle's largest nesting colony of Great Blue Herons. The herons make their nests there from February through July or August each year.  In May, 2013, due to extreme eagle predation, the Kiwanis Ravine heron colony moved to Commodore Park.

The public can enter shoulder areas of the ravine during daylight hours year-round. Find out more  at
