The Land of the Hazelnuts: Growing up in Tukwila

Written by Fast Eddy

The Land of the Hazelnuts is a trip back in time to the good times of the 1960s and 70s in Tukwila Washington. In the shadow of Seattle, the name Tuwila means, “Land of the Hazelnuts” in the Native American Duwamish tribal language.

Riding on Stingray bikes from sunrise to sunset, the kids explored every nook and cranny of this small town, having the times of their lives, daily.

Whether on a sled racing down steep hills, or splashing through the pond in Seattle’s mild summers, Tukwila kids were constantly in motion. Creating new adventures and misadventures to the beat of the Beatles, the Stones, and Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Come join the fun in those simpler, safer times, in the Land of the Hazelnuts.
