Nice park

I ran into the Newcastle beach park while running from the Mercer Slough park along Coal Creek parkway. I hit the Washington lake loop trail and close by was the park. The park is... read more

Can be hard to find the first time, but well worth it. Like how the parking is at the very back and then the beach and picnic area seem so separate from it. Has an enclosed swimming area that is nice as well as playground equipment, picnic site and grills. Eagles nest in this area so that is special too!

A great place for families to enjoy the water, frolic in the sun, picnic, play volleyball, or just let the little ones learn to ride bikes or scooters. Nice, even path goes all the way around the little park. Parents can see their kids from anyplace on the grassy lawn. Lifeguards on duty in summer. Dogs are not allowed after... More

I ran into the Newcastle beach park while running from the Mercer Slough park along Coal Creek parkway. I hit the Washington lake loop trail and close by was the park. The park is very well maintained, the restrooms are clean, the grass is trimmed and it is a fun place for families and kids. For serious runners/bikers, the park... More

This a wonderful family place. It features swings and a play area away from the beach where young visitors can play safely. The beach is close to free parking and quite level. Restroom facilities are handy, as well. Weekends in the summer are very busy, but not now. It is a peaceful place for a walk with beautiful Lake Washington... More

The Canadian Geese rule! If you don't mind stepping in geese poop with every move forward, then this wouldn't be a bad park. The slides, swings, and the like amuse the young kids, but I spent more time checking my shoes. The low bank beach is nice.

This park is not far from our home. It is right on Lake Washington, has a small beach, swimming area and a nice sized dock. You can rent one of three picnic area's and kids will enjoy the play area or walking loop trail into the woods and along the lake. It has a nice expanse of grass to play... More

Great park for quick bbq with waterfront view. Lacks parking space, which can be annoying during weekends on nice days. Good for picnics but not working out due to its size.

This proved to be a quiet and beautiful setting on Lake Washington with ample picnic space. It's good for families.

This is our beach park. If we want to get away for a quick outside meal by the lake we go to here. Just off I-405 but down the hill and across the old railway line. The beach is clean and the swimming area is sheltered by a jetty and walkway with steps down into the swimming area. There is... More

Awesome park and beach area for the family and friends. Parking can be a challenge if you are late. There are plenty of picnic tables and a covered picnic area you can reserve through the city. Flat grassy area to set up volleyball net and a nice playground for the kids. The beach is nice for the kids to play... More
