Great Nature Walk
Oct 2019 • Family
Path takes you along the slough with a few educational graphics. There are choices to make as the path goes in different directions. One divergent path took us along a blueberry farm, leaves turning a beautiful scarlet. Definitely worth the walk. We’ll visit again and take a different path next time.

Once we figured out that the entrance shown on Google Maps was no longer open due to construction, we found the (hidden) parking lot and the rest was paradise. Such a nice stroll along boardwalks and loamy paths, in the midst of ferns, berries, and evergreens. Great place for families!

Great trails but lots of construction
Jul 2019 • Solo
Great place for walks - with massive slugs - but lots of construction in the area. I would not advise walking here from downtown bellevue as sidewalks are closed near the park due to construction.

An Interesting Park
Jul 2019 • Family
This is a huge park with numerous trails,lakes and vegetation.On top of it, it is in the midst of Town. You can boat in the Summer and also fishing. We saw many people sitting and meditating on the banks of Stream..You have to approach from the Backside( Where parking is limited.) as the Frontside is blocked due to construction.You can spend hours here. The time at your disposal is limitation.

Great interesting hiking

Off a main drag, but lots of room to hike and enjoy the environment. Spent a little over an hour here.

Little wild heaven in middle of the city
Sep 2018 • Friends
This place is very quiet and wild which is unbelievably located in the middle of the busy city Bellevue. Boating is good for the summer; It is a place with many paths for walking and jogging, it is good all year long. There is a blueberry farm on the side, very happy to see it surviving the big city expansion.
The culture/visitors center was on the side which was blocked by construction when I was there, not easy to get to it.
We parked on the other side of the park which has a couple of small parking lots.
Because it is a nature preserve, a lot of trees, it is a great exercise place for summer. But I would not suggest a single lady go there after dark.

320 Beautiful Acres
Mar 2018 • Couples
I've come here twice and walked the paths. It is a pretty nice park and it seems either well maintained or it's fairly new. I'm sure I haven't really explored everything as I certainly haven't been kayaking (or seen anyone do it) but I loved coming upon the old barn or house that's half underwater. We did walk through the blueberry farm but I wasn't sure what the protocol was so we left pretty quickly.

Never found it

I had really wanted to check out this park but due to construction Google maps never got us there☹️
We’ll try it again some other time.

This is a wonderful park with extensive walking trails, which are well maintained. There is an accessible blue berry park near by and you can boat/canoe in parts of the slough.

Great wetland area park
Jun 2018 • Couples
This is a wonderful natural oasis amid this huge urban area. They have great walking trails - bring bug repellent.
There are picnic areas, a canoe launch, a blueberry farm, an historic building, and free ranger led walks.
They also have great youth/community programs at their Environmental Education Center in cooperation with the Pacific Science Center.
Great outdoors experience!
