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.

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...

head to Enatai Beach and grab a kayak to explore the slough. Watch for turtles and the occasional heron hiding in the greenery en route.

Nice sites, wildlife and a romantic place to take your honey. Wouldn't do it in the rain, but on a decent day it is fun.

This Nature park is within a short distance from Bellevue Square. A lush garden of Blue Berries is one of the attractions. They open a part of the garden every day for picking blueberries. You pick the amount of blueberries you want and pay. It is a fun activity for old and young. Though children enjoy it most as they... More
