Great playground for kids/bathroom also

Our neice and nephew loved playing here and came back 2 more evenings. We enjoyed seeing the sea otters and marbled murreltes in the bay.

We walked Waterfront Park after visiting the SeaLife Center. We were able to locate the Founder's Monument and the spot where the Iditarod was historically said to have started. Since Seward is the "mural capital," we were in pursuit of the many murals that were painted in the downtown area.

We considered camping here because it is so close to many places we wanted to visit, but the campsites are wall-to-wall and it is so wet and muddy. The good thing is the waterfront view, if you happen to get one of those sites.

Park is beautiful and clean, playground built by town locals. Breathtaking views of Resurrection Bay. Great for adults and children.

The park has great views of the bay and is super close to downtown Seward. Camping is nice there if you do not get one of "those" people near you. The city has people checking the sites frequently, so the eyes of government are upon you...

We were originally supposed to park our RV at the military facility in Seward but saw that it was too far away from downtown Seward. We found the Waterfront Park RV and decided to stay here. It wasn't full hook-up but the scenery is breathtaking! It was beautiful waking up every morning to the snow capped mountains and Resurrection Bay... More

We are staying in the Holiday Inn right on the harbour, from our room we can walk the whole length of the waterfront into town just over a mile away which we have done a couple of times. The trail is initially a boardwalk that passes the small boat harbour & is then paved right along the waterfront. The views... More

I have never seen a park quite like this one. All along the bay is a paved walkway from downtown Seward to the marina. In some areas, it is a campground mainly for RVs with hook ups. There is also an area for tents. In other areas there are picnic tables, a playground, a large pavilion. Between the path and... More

Nice place to walk and take in the mountain and sea views. Fun to see all the campers too. Grab a coffee, grab a bench and soak it all in.
