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. This is a great place to go during Christmas holiday since the place is all light up and even has the Clam Lights. There is a big celebration on the 4th of July and... More

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.

Lake Washington has lots of venues, and Coulon Park is right up there with them all. You can get a nice long walk in with views all along the way. Kidd Valley/Ivar's set a good standard for Seattle fast food, and the park is well maintained with all that Boeing money flowing to Renton.

Me and my wife walk this park every other day and love watching the chance of seasons. We walk as much as we can and live 2 miles away but walk from our house just to see and enjoy the beautiful views of Mt. Rainier and majestic lake Washington!

A across the water is the Boeing 737 factory. New planes roll out of the factory daily. A Kidd Valley hamburger and Ivars fish house are a great choice for lunch. On a sunny spring and summer day the people watching is great. Boaters and jet skis pull up for food, as do many waterfowl. A pretty cool park.

As a Renton Resident, I think this is my city's best attraction with something to offer for everyone. Here are some of its best features: • Free summer concerts • Early summer fishing contest for kids • Brilliant Fourth of July festivities • Breathtaking autumn foliage (my favorite) • Winter festivities, including the annual Ivar’s Clam Lights that run from...
