Scene in Edmonds: Have a seat

Taking a walk along the waterfront Friday, photographer Chris Walton noticed the City of Edmonds has installed many new benches near the ferry terminal, and replaced some that were worn. “Great job for those many folks who love to relax and enjoy the views in our town,” he said.

  1. Now the tables in that area need cleaning and the moss has grown on a few of them.can those be cleaned up so they are able to be used.they are terribly dirty and covered in bird dodo!!thank you.

  2. They look really nice but I’m wondering why the picture shown is the old one that wasn’t replaced?
    I wish they had turned a couple towards the walkway. These should last a long time.

    1. My understanding is that this is indeed a new bench. But I’m sure the photographer will correct me if I’m wrong.

  3. I cannot verify where that specific bench came from. It looks brand new to me (as well as the rest of them). I know for sure that all of the cement platforms on the south side of the ferry terminal, that have these 7 benches, were recently poured. They are all new, and did not exist in the past.

  4. I walk it every day and one was already on a pad. The South one on the East side with a plaque on it already. There is one new one on the East side and the rest face the water.

  5. My apologies to Mr. Anderson. I was incorrect.
    I walked down to the beach today and noticed that the one bench, of the 7 new benches, that I happened to photograph (because I wanted green grass in the background), was not brand new, but the others were). Hopefully, the “thank-you” to the city for doing good things doesn’t get lost in this simple exchange, and my error. Thank-you Mr. Anderson for making sure that the details are exactly correct because we want to ensure accurate reporting.
