Make time to visit Chetzemoka Park above Port Townsend. Stroll through majestic Sequoias and other towering trees. Wonderful panoramic views across the sound to Whidbey Island. Perfect spot for a picnic!

We visited this little park based on the Trip Advisor recommendation. While it is a pretty little park the trails are short and there isn't much going on when there isn't an event scheduled. A pleasant stop, but definitely not a "must see".

This is a lovely place to spend a few hours. The view is unforgettable and there is easy access to the coast for beach combing at low tide. The arbor is gorgeous, and the history info posted at the entrance is surprisingly interesting. All in all, a lovely slice of real life in this very special community.

Nice place for a quick stop and stroll. Beach access. Probably a good picnic site. Seemed to be a popular place.

We arrived in town a bit earlier than our hotel check in time, so we stopped at the park to walk around. What a beautiful little hideaway. There was a gazebo, little bridge, garden area, play area (we'll have to bring out son next time we're in town), and beach access where we could walk around, see the ferries passing... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor we visited this gem of a park. Wonderful greenery fronts spectacular water views. There is a gazebo in the middle, presumably with good acoustics, in which stood an Opera singer practicing her scales. I was tempted to ask her to belt out a verse or two of Sweet Home Alabama but thought better of it (kidding... More

Happen to stumble onto the local production of The Women of Troy. Not being a die hard play goer, I thought it was pretty good. I thought the acting was very good and enjoyed it. It pretty cool that the community is active in the arts and produces events of this type which offers the average visitor something other than... More

Drive the extra 4 minutes to find this amazing gem. Wonderful gardens, and access to a terrific beach for a walk (if the tide is right). You may even find your self walking into Shakespeare in the Park. High probability you'll find yourself amazed by this incredible little park.
