Jessie Smith Nature Preserve

Located off Majors Lane in Kent sits Jessie Smith Wildlife Preserve, which is comprised of 14 acres of wooded land. Donated to the city by Roy Smith in 1961, it is a memorial to Smith’s wife, Jessie. A nature trail through the park provides one of the best locations in Kent to watch spring emerge through a progression of wildflowers. Jessie Smith Wildlife Preserve is also used extensively for nature study by Kent Schools. The Park was expanded in 1998 with an additional donation of 20 acres.
