For one of the best views of Seattle head to Kerry Park, a small park located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill.  A photo from here is Seattle postcard-perfect, featuring ferries crossing Elliott Bay, the city skyline with the Space Needle in the forefront and, if weather conditions are favorable, a view of Mt. Rainier.

It's quite a hike up Queen Anne from the Seattle Center to Kerry Park, but it's quite worth the view. There's an actual park area below the lookout which includes some playground equipment and a baseball field. The lookout part includes some benches and an art sculpture -- a lovely place to look over the downtown skyscrapers and the bay.

It is located very nice Queen Anne neighborhood. You can take a bus and drive to downtown Queen Anne and walk 10 minutes to this park (parking is easy to find!)

Walking distance from the Space Needle etc, you get to see some lovely houses and gardens on your way and then a great view across Seattle.

We stopped by this park on our recent trip to Seattle as we were already in the area. It turned out to be one our favorite stops during our trip. The weather was beautiful on the day we visited the park and that likely help leave an even better impression. The view of downtown Seattle and surrounding water is outstanding... More

We walked from the Space Needle to Kerry Park. It was a great walk. It was a beautiful day and the view of downtown Seattle from Kerry Park was nice. Kerry Park was small basically an overlook. We got the Kerry Park and the Space Needle perspective of Seattle in the same day. Both were nice.

The view and photo-ops from Kerry Park were worth the trip up....but we also went down the street to another little park (to your right, when facing Seattle skyline) and had another great view of the water.

Kerry Park is hardly large enough to be called a park but the view is amazing. We came on a somewhat clear night and got some great shots. Because of our timing, parking was good but still not great. I could definitely see this being super difficult! Don't expect too much from this park and try not to stay too... More

I went here after dinner and was not expecting much. When I got there I was pleasantly shocked to see the entire Seattle Skyline all lit up! Its gorgeous - even at night.
