This is a really nice park at the south end of Lake Washington. The part has lots of automobile parking, and great paths to walk while taking in the views of the lake. If you have a boat, the launch is large with plenty of trailer parking.

This was a great park on the water's edge of Lake Washington. The park is definitely family and tourist friendly. It was a very comfortable evening at the park and there are also several restaurants to choose from for a meal. Worth the visit.

walked here yesterday with a friend...even though the weather was not as warm as predicted (are we ever surprised at that?) still it was MOST enjoyable! We come here often...and will continue to come. Fun to watch for the animals and beautiful as seasons change! so nice to have a waterfront park so close.

My wife and I enjoy walking the trail year round. It's about 2 miles 1 way. Be sure to walk out onto the pier. If you're hungry when you get back, try Ivar's or Kid Valley. Kid Valley has one of the best hamburgers around. The park is along Lk WA so the sights of Mercer Island and the Seattle... More

Nice place for a leisurely stroll after work during the summertime. Parking can be a huge hassle though.

We love everything about Coulon Park, the trails, the docks to walk on and the restaurant's. There's and Ivar's Fish Bar and a Kid Valley Burgers.

Really nice park at the south end of lake union. Worth your time if in Renton. Lots of places to set up a picnic, walk and swim. Only problem is not a lot of parking space. I go there often in spring and summer.

I grew up in this neighborhood. The park is beautiful and I was a daily visitor when I was a kid. Now when my kids come for a visit, we go there to play and eat at Ivar's seafood bar. Great food!

Unobstructed view of the south end of Lake Washington with a great mile+ walk path. Ivars and Kid Valley both fun outings with outdoor seating a plenty. Boat and fishing activities add to the enjoyment.
