“Great place to watch eagles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

A huge park with a marina, pavillion, playground and picnic tables, but the best thing to do, is to look for the eagles that nest nearby. They are easy to spot fishing in the water near the marina.

“Kids said the playground was "Heaven on Earth"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The kids (6, 9, and 12) were blown away by the playground at Colvill Park. We've been to lots of playgrounds over the years, but I'd have to say this was their favorite. I had to pull them away after 3.5 hours of play. They could have spent all day there.
There were areas for many different age levels. Also FYI, a lot of the areas are wheelchair accessible since there are ramps in many places. The park was right on the water, so bring binoculars to spot the birds.

Stopped by to watch the Bald Eagles on a Monday & was not disappointed. Saw many eagles roosted in tree tops & also some that were soaring high above.

“Best park ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Great place to see eagles--we saw dozens of them today. There is a children's park to die for! It has the biggest spread of park equipment I've ever seen. There is a wonderful large children's garden--I will come back in the summer to see it in full bloom. It has a moon garden, cook's garden, water garden, butterfly garden, sunny garden, etc. etc.
