Visitors to Lawton Park can enjoy leisurely strolls down a wide pathway that carries the visitor through hills, woods and grassy lawns wioth views of Ballard the the Ship Canal. Two gravel paths provide neighborhood access to the park, school, and transportation routes. Picnic tables are available. 

Lawton Park was purchased by the City in 1952, and named after the nearby Fort Lawton Army Base. The base was named after Major General Henry Ware Lawton, who was known for his capture of Chief Geronimo in 1886.
