“Ok beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

The beach is not bad. Good play area with lots of stuff to do. The water is fine. Bring your own snacks and drinks cause the snack bar is airport prices.

“Great for watching the sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Right on Lake Washington. Great play area for kids and a nice stroll but HOLD onto your kids the dock is gated but if you get a little nervous around water - take a stroller.

“Lovely setting & great amenities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We visited this park for a family get together. We rented a nice little pavilion tucked away from the crowds. It was pretty busy over Seafair weekend. The only issue were the bathroom facilities. They were not clean or stocked. It's a lovely location with the beach, playground, and open areas for picnics or barbecue. Ivar's is even a short walk down the path!

“Walk/ jog/ bring the kids! Anything!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

Leaving Renton after a business trip & I needed fresh air & scenery. Rare sunny-ish day in Seattle area! I loved this park. Lots of free parking. I walked & jogged & enjoyed the view of the lake & mountains. There were others exercising, guys fishing, teenagers jumping off the diving boards, little kids swimming & lots of other children on huge play structure. No dogs or bikes/rollerblades/skateboards made it extra pleasant for a nice morning workout (even tho I don't mind those activities at other parks - very much enjoyed the quiet here.) I didn't have time to grab a bite at one of the 2 restaurants but if I go back, those are nice features.

“Great Park but......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park would be a great park if there were less water fowl. There is so many water fowl that you can't sit anywhere for fear of sitting on fowl droppings. I used to eat lunch at this park and hopefully the fowl have been reduced in numbers.
