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!

I LOVE Coulon Beach! It has SO much to offer! 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

Flat walking trails all of which are paved. Large areas of grass and no shortage of covered picnic places. Great boat launch, for those who need that kind of thing. And a rarity for a city park around here, a couple of good restaurants are on the pier. Great place to grab some fish and chips and watch the float... More

The park is a great place for a family outing, for walking alone or with someone you love along the lake, and for enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. The children's play area is at one end of the park, there's a boat launch area, a picnic area, a "boardwalk" out on the lake, and food is available for... More

Great place to spend your spare time. Nice waterfront area. Enjoy the water or just watch others enjoy the water. One of the few places left to launch a boat, grab a bite to eat, and watch the people, the boats, and the birds. Nice, clean, safe facilities. No bums or panhandlers pestering the people. A place to let the... More
