Owner description: 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.

“Best views of the city for free!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

It was quite a hike (the last half mile is uphill!) but the views are worth it. Better than at the Space Needle that's for sure!! Go up with a bottle of wine and relax at this great little park!

“absolute best view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The best view to see the beauty of Seattle and the Space Needle. The view is breathtaking and you'll see even Puget Sound. Even the houses within the park is also a great treat for anybody who would love to have picture of the best view of Seattle.

“Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This is the spot where many of the great Skyline shots of Seattle are taken from. Get there early if it's a clear night because the road is very small and lots and lots of people show up to take in the view.

“Great View of Seattle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Kerry Park is very small but has one of the best views of downtown Seattle and Mount Rainier. It's a great place for taking photos. The street it is on is also something to see - lots of big, beautiful old homes and old fashioned street lights. All with a gorgeous view of the Sound.
