First off, it takes more than 20 minutes to walk all of the trails that Cascade Park has to offer. You can easily walk several trails that would take 1-2 hours on a good day without inclement weather. There are a considerable amount of trails...More

We went to hike, but the park is small. Nice incline to the top of the man-made falls. Plenty of shade. Park was busy on a Thursday afternoon. Nice fountain. Restrooms are port-a-potties.

If you just drive by, you may think you see it all from the road. Park, walk, go to the top of the waterfalls. Truly a a beautiful spot. Would be great to pack a picnic, read a book, and spend a few hours just...More

We had a family wedding here recently and it was a lovely venue for a small, intimate group. The gazebo was a lovely covered spot for the ceremony, and the fountain made a wonderful background for photos. Because this is a public park it was...More

My friends' grand children really love going here. They were thrilled that they were showing "Auntie" a special place. Really it's a lovely and peaceful park to see. Loved seeing those beautiful flowers too!

A small quiet park to enjoy reading on a bench perhaps near the fountain or waterfall. Trail around a field on cut grass, some gravel.

The portajohns were there, and apparently had been for some time. Other people kept their distance.

We like to have nice attractions in the area for us and the kid, good restaurants, beautiful area with scenary of lakes, mountains etc. Any ideas?

How about starting in Portland OR then traveling the 140 miles to Mt. Rainier (Packwood) and from Mt. Rainier (Longmire) on to Olympia--Aberdeen and visiting the Park clockwise on to Port Angeles.From there taking the shortest route well north of Seattle and so avoiding the heavy traffic and on into Cascade Park.Finally from there drive to visit Seattle and fly home. All this in 2 weeks. Any suggestions ? Thank you.

Your plans look ok, just try to have time to stop and see the unexpected things that pop up on any road trip. You can take a ferry from Port Townsend to Whidbey Island and drive north to Hwy 20.
