This is nice little place to hang out and walk to when you done having something to eat from near by places. They have a cool little spot for kids to play at if you wanted to sit and watch the local boaters comming back from the sound or heading out. The summers are the best, nice and cool with... More

Nice park to visit. It was clean and well kept. It is a great place to see the Olympic mountains, the state capital building and a glimpse of Mt. Rainier.

The little park was great, our kids were having a great time until trashing people started swearing, using the toys, and just acting inconsiderate!

Stop at the grocery store and pick up a burrito or a scoop of ice cream and take it out to the boardwalk and let the kids enjoy the bay. The walkway is screened and there are benches and it's safe and scenic. Loved the area. Children's park/playground nearby.
