The slough is an excellent place to kayak. To reach it you need to put in at Enatai beach park. You have to kayak in open water for a couple blocks but once you're in the slough, there are all kinds of wetland flora and fauna.

Mercer Slough is a beautiful place to go for a walk and relax. There is plenty of area to walk around and an interesting mix of boardwalks and trails. My favorite, the skunky smelling plants. :)

I went running in the park on a Friday morning and it was quiet, beautiful, and peaceful. I was surprised to not see anyone else during my run. The paths alternate from gravel to wooden boardwalk to a soft mulch. Even though there were spots that looked sodden the mulch keeps it from being a muddy mess. Great birdwatching and... More

Right in the middle of Bellevue is this huge plot of land dedicated to a nature reserve. The park is very well maintained and has walking and jogging paths laid out throughout.

We often drive here and take our dog for a walk along the boardwalks and soft-earth/bark paths. Being close - sometimes only feet away - you get both a quiet woodsy and limited watery ambiance. At the end of the walk, depending on the day and time, Pace's Fruit Stand is there to offer fresh, locally grown veggies and fruit.... More

I was there in November, so I can only imagine what a great place it would be to visit in better weather. Our hotel was near the fish ladder, birding trail, and lookout tower. A great place to take the dog for a walk and an unexpected treat to explore when travelling on business.

I never realized when I used to live near hear what a great place there is to just hang by the water. Since then - I discovered several little places down around the West side (I am sorry, can't remember actual name of them!) that are called 'parks' and are even places you can swim! on the Lake. Around the... More

Great park in-between Bellevue ( a suburb of) and Seattle. Great kayaking on the Slough, and connections to Lake Washington. Also trails go through the park, good for hiking and biking. Overall a good place to spend the day...
