We visited this park (it is actually split into two separate sections along Lake Washington) twice, both times in the morning. The northern section includes an open u-shaped concrete pier in Lake Washington as well as a short nature trail into a small wooded area where Juanita Creek enters the lake. The southern section is significantly larger than the northern... More

This is a lovely park to walk through on a spring evening. The sounds of birds right overhead while you walk on boardwalks over the swampy edges of Lake Washington completely blot out the stress of the city. Just standing and looking up through the trees is sure to be interesting if you can be quiet . . . what... More

We bought good fish and chips, across the street; and had a nice picnic. The park is clean and well maintained.

It's a beautiful place full of bird sounds at this time of the year. We saw turtles, a lot of birds, fishes and even a bald eagle. I love how quiet and peaceful it is

It's been a while since we have visited this park, but we went back on a beautiful winters day. This is one of the best parks in the region and definitely one of the best for wildlife viewing. Birds you see all the time, but the highlight this time of year are all the turtles that can be found basking... More

This park is pure nature. When I walk here I leave the stress of traffic behind. There are nice paths to stroll. It's not a huge park but it is lush with birds including red winged blackbirds and Eagles! When the sun is shining the many turtles shamelessly sunbathe on the logs. Shimmering dragonflies drift by and are mesmerizing.

This park has good parking and outstanding trails and is a good weather place for a nice walk or to take some photo's of some of the wild life in the park. Nicely kept up but some of the garbage needs speedier collection. I will definitely go back again with my camera

A small and very relaxing wetlands park with walking paths and boardwalks out into the wetlands with viewing platforms. We go here to walk and bring our binoculars to watch the many different bird species, including Eagles, all kinds of waterfowl and lots of songbirds. There are always families walking about and exploring the park, dog walkers too. This is... More

This place is quiet, too quiet for me. But if you want to enjoy lake Washington, read a book or enjoy the wildlife, this is the place!
