This self-guided excursion designed by City’s recreation staff will direct participants to 10 unique landmarks throughout Mill Creek. At each location, participants are encouraged to snap a selfie. Whether exploring the wetlands, flying through the air on the zip line at Cougar Park, or running with a stroller along the North Creek Trail Boardwalk, each selfie will capture an aspect of Mill Creek.

Photo stops include:

1. Nickel Creek Park Trails. While it may look small from the road, Nickel Creek Park (1900 164th St. SE) has amazing winding trails to explore. 

2. Tamago Sculpture, Heron Park. This bronze, egg-shaped sculpture in Heron Park (2701 155th St. SE) was created in 1994 by Gerard Tsutakawa, an accomplished sculptor who has completed numerous commissions throughout the Northwest and Japan.

3. Zip Line, Cougar Park. Grab a selfie stick for the ultimate action shot via the adrenaline pumping zip line at Cougar Park (3221 148th St. SE).

4. Wetlands. Located off of 35th Avenue SE and 144th Street SE, the wetlands are a natural gem (be on the lookout for photobombing beavers and birds). 

5. Bocce Court, Buffalo Park. Play friends in a Bocce match and take a selfie with the scoreboard for bragging rights at Buffalo Park (13401 44th Ave. SE). 

6. Mill Creek Sports Park. Sprint, hop or tumble across the beautiful new turf field and snap a selfie in front of the scoreboard while you’re there.

7. Flow Sculpture, located near the Mill Creek Town Center Starbucks. The beautiful public art piece, the Flow Sculpture, is an abstract art installation that beautifies a former bus stop on the southeast corner of the 15400 block of Main Street. 

8. Wrapped Utility Boxes, Southeast corner of Main Street and Mill Creek Boulevard. With help from the City’s Art and Beautification Board, Mill Creek has begun brightening up Mill Creek utility boxes (a vibrant backdrop for selfies). 

9. Habitat-Tat Sculpture, Mill Creek Blvd. This massive sculpture depicts a human-sized northern flicker perched on a giant branch at 15704 Mill Creek Blvd (just off SR 527). 

10. North Creek Park Boardwalk. A hidden gem located at the southern end of Mill Creek on the North Creek Trail, where a Red-winged Blackbird might make an appearance. Access this portion of the trail via 9th Avenue SE south from 164th Street SE.

Selfie Trail participants can post their selfies via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #MyMillCreek. The City might even share or retweet the most creative social posts.
