The park is great. Easy walking paths, beautiful scenery, good chance of catching bunnies, geese and even Eagles (nesting nearby!). But dogs are not welcome at courant park... Oh, and you can't feed the birds anymore either.

This is a true gem, located right on the shores of Lake Washington. There's something for everyone here. Amazing playground for kids with a huge assortment of toys. Boat launch, Kidd valley and Ivar's restaurants, plenty of walking trails, beach for swimming. The city takes very nice care of this park. You will not be disappointed!

Gene Coulon is the best place in Renton to spend some leisure time or get your exercise in! With the beach, the boat launch, the Renton Sailing Foundation, the playsets, the tennis courts, and picnic areas, there is not much more you could ask for. Great for walking and viewing Lake Washington, watching the boats, people watching, and even lunch... More

The park has lots of lush green grass and is right on Lake Washington. One end is a beach for swimming, then there is a large boat launch/parking area, then an area with a couple of fast food areas. There is a nice paved walking trail beside the lake. We enjoy going there to eat at the Ivar's ' Seafood... More

Great Boat Ramps. Looking for easy access to Boat Launch??? This launch is the best on Lake Washington. It is sometimes crowded but usually has volunteers out to help direct the lanes.
