Very nice park with a rose arbor. A gazebo, where my son and daughter in law were married 20 years ago, swings and playground equipment, picnic tables, nice area to walk. Beautiful view of the water and Mt Baker.

Beautiful, quiet botanical park overlooking Puget Sound. Lovely part of the Uptown experience. We will return.

We relaxed here during a walk through Port Townsend. The flowers were gorgeous and very well kept, and the play equipment was sturdy and safe. There were also clean bathrooms and a view of the ocean. Very nice park!

Well maintained park with access to a nice, quiet beach. The gardens are very pretty, and I enjoyed the bench swings. Will definitely go back the next time we're in town

I loved walking here in the morning after breakfast! It is a great hidden gem right in town. I liked the garden that meanders through the park.. the view of the mountains on a clear day and the smell of the puget sound is awesome. When the tide is out you can walk down to the beach.

Rhododendrons and other flowers were great and can walk down to beach. Beautiful trees and grass also.

This was a beautiful park with a white gazebo centerpiece and a walkway covered with flowers. There is a walkway down to the beach and a fenced area north of the park for dogs.

A nice place to relax, sitting in the sunshine. It's nicely laid out with roses and rhododendrons and has a small wooden bridge. A nice place to stop on the way to or from Fort Worden.

I love this little park that looks out over the water. It is best in spring or summer when the flowers are out (wonderful rose arbor), but even in January I saw children playing and adults relaxing there. There is a path that leads down from the beach, from which one can walk all the way to Fort Worden.
