Dottie Harper Park, adjacent to the Burien Community Center, is a 3.5 acre wooded park with mature second-growth firs, cedars, hemlocks, and native hardwoods. Sword ferns, salal, snowberry, oceanspray, red elderberry, Oregon grape, and other native species dominate the undergrowth. The park also features a remodeled playground, picnic space, amphitheater, and walking trails. Within walking distance of hundreds of apartments and single-family homes, the park provides a quiet place for strolling, picnicking, and wildlife viewing.
