With summer fast approaching, Seattle Weekly invites you to vote for Seattle's best in a number of categories--like Best TV Weather Forecaster, Best Piece of Public Art, and Best Happy Hour. But with apologies to Carkeek Park--and to kids--we neglected to include Best Discount Gun Shop for Kids.
Regardless, that verdant retreat has once again shown why it's the front-runner. In May, a teenager used Carkeek's shrubbery to discard his AK-47 after he drunkenly crashed his car into two parked ones. And yesterday, a 4th-grader on a field trip found himself a loaded Glock. Field trip fee? Probably around $5. Finding a loaded Glock on the beach: priceless.
