Its a huge park, salt water pool great in the summer, mushroom hunting, jogging, hiking, breathtaking views off the coast, and you can walk over to the ferry dock and take a boat on an adventure. You can walk north out of along the shoreline and go all the way to the Alki neighborhood and beach as well - its... More

Recently moved to neighborhood across street from Lincoln Park. A day is not complete without a visit to the beach. Great family trails, views of Vashon, Ferry watching, beautiful trees, and kids' activities. My little man has met many nice dogs, and is dying to chase the White Geese. It also has picnic areas with grills, bathrooms and even a... More

I much prefer Seahurst Park in Burien for a more woodsy and secluded feeling, but this park is nice. Best part is walking along trails on or near the beach. Good views of the Vashon Island ferry, Vashon Island, Blake Island, and the Olympics. If you want to ride on the ferry to Vashon or Southworth without a car, park... More

Lincoln Park is incredibly scenic. It's right on Puget Sound and it's very pleasant to watch the ferries come in and out. There's a pool, lots of playground equipment, and really nice picnic shelters you can reserve and use the BBQ's. One of my favorite Seattle parks.

I live on the Eastside and usually trek over to Greenlake for my weekend walk, I heard about Lincoln Park from a friend and decided to head out to West Seattle instead. It was a cloudy October day, so it was a great day for a leisurely walk, not too many people. There is a big parking lot and restrooms... More

A lovely little park with trails through the woods, a pleasant beach where you can watch the ferries going back and forth from Vashon Island, and picnic areas. If felt more human scale than Discovery Park. Bring a picnic and enjoy the day If you rely on public transport, the C line from downtown Seattle stops in front of the... More

We have lived in west Seattle for a long time. We enjoy this local hidden spot over the over populated touristy Alki beach. There is a also a public pool overlooking the water.

Nice park with good paths for a walk and some beach front areas. Very pretty on a sunny day though the rest of the crowds will have figured this out as well. Nice place for a walk or jog. You might even catch sight of whales from here.

This really wonderful park is located in West Seattle not far from the dock where you catch the Vashon Island ferry. There are some beautiful trees in the upper part of the park. Playground for kids, but make sure you walk down to the walk way below that runs along the water with great view of the Olympics.

The only public outdoor salt water pool in Seattle (seasonal) right long the Sound. You can ride your bike on a bike path from downtown Seattle or points north and it makes for perfect summer weekday. Stunning ride, great pay off at the end. This is a lesser known attraction to the visitors but well worth the pedal or drive.
