Jordan Woods reopened in the spring of 2013 following improvements funded by the 2008 bond measure. The 18-acre site is located is off of NW Reeves St. in the Cedar Mill neighborhood, north of Hwy. 26, near the intersection of NW Cornell Rd. and NW Cedar Hills Blvd.
The natural area is most easily accessed through Jackie Husen Park; additional access points at the north end of NW 107th Ave, or from a neighborhood entrance on NW Lost Park Dr.
From Jackie Husen Park, a paved quarter-mile trail goes through the natural area. It overlooks Cedar Mill Creek, and a soft surface trail leads from the paved trail down the ravine to a boardwalk. A bridge over the creek continues to the neighborhood trailhead on the opposite side of the ravine.
Restoration of the site involved the removal of invasive species to plant native shrubs and trees to attract native wildlife.
Jordan Woods Natural Area is also home to one of THPRD’s newest features: a nature art installation. As part of Nature Revealed: Discovering Nature Through Art, Seattle artist Vaughn Bell installed a series of granite sculptures called Mossuments. Engraved with taxonomic language for various moss species, and one piece stating “Look Closely,” the art installation encourages visitors to observe the smaller things around them, and to watch how moss will attach and grow over structures over time.
