A beautiful park for the whole family. Beach, Picnic areas, restaurants and a boat launch round out this great park at the southern end of Lake Washington.

Enjoyed hanging out with the grandsons here! The Northwest is always outdoor friendly, even in the rain, but we visited on a nice August day. (It was very cool compared with our home in Mississippi!) This park is has easy access and none of the crowds that you find in other nearby areas. Water is soothing to adults and there... More

Love this park....easy access & free parking! Love that it has two restaurants to enjoy. It's also about 15 minutes from the airport ; perfect detour location before heading to the airport!

I've been going there since they built it when I was a girl, and tended to take it for granted. But after living in other places, and returning here, My eyes are... More

This could be a really nice park at the South end of Lake Washington. We have gone there for years now they have banned dogs from the park even if they are leashed. The police officer ask us to leave because we had our dog with us, she is a mini poodle and on a leash. According to him the... More

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.

It is also conveniently located about a half-mile from The Landing shopping area, which provides you with additional places to grab a bite to eat or acquire some new sporting goods to... More

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
