Great place to walk on a nice day in Renton. You can sit and look out at the water and have a bite to eat. The lake is beautiful this time of year and very peaceful

This is a perfect little park; there are so many things one can do: there is a fairly large and new playground for kids, ample room for picnics, tennis courts, board walk on the water, and Ivars seafood restaurant (which has some yummy fish & chips!) on the water as well. We love taking an evening stroll with our little... More

I happened upon this park after visiting the Jimi Hendrix Memorial. It was a beautiful Spring day & the crowds were light. I had the traditional fish & chips at Ivar's & then walked along the peaceful wooden walkway. The glint of the sun on the water was almost blinding. Paradise.

This is a beautiful park fronting the lake. It has gazebos, paved walking trails and would be accessible for all. Just a nice place to come for an hour or a day!!

Love to come here for a burger to eat and sit and relax looking at the lake. Always a busy park so lots to see - spandex bicycle riders, joggers, families at the beach, planes from the airport, boats skidding around the water. Jog forst, then eat the burger!

From swings & play toys to barbecue pits, clean grass, docks to walk out on, boat launch, biking, skating, running & walking paths and BEAUTIFUL, beautiful Lake Washington -- not just views of it, but you're right there! Also a couple if delicious restaurants -- I especially like Ivar's Seafood... More
