Saw a group of kids learning to paddle. Love the walkable bridge. Lots of people and dogs. Looks like a great place to live (if you can afford it) or visit. For us, it was a perfect place to stop and stretch, and bridge-walk.

A great place to hang out, , walk, swim from a sandy beach, play volleyball, launch a kayak or board (or rent), BBQ and picnic. Kids play area with swings and plenty of grassy areas. Check the Farmer's markets on Fridays in the summer.

Juanita Park has it all! Beavers, musk rats, turtles, eagles, osprey, great blue heron and much, much more. There is nothing like walking out on the wooden board walks close to dusk and seeing the quiet peacefulness of the lake, the beavers working away and the birds coming home to roost and another beautiful sun sets on Lake Washington.

We found this location because of a groupon for paddleboarding. We stayed all day! It was big and open, food trucks nearby to grab food, and renting paddleboards to explore the smooth, calm water. The bathrooms are clean, there is some shade with big trees nearby, but parking can be tough on a sunny day. Bring water!

I have taken my kids here for 20 years and now grandchildren love it as well. Perfect place to go any sunny or even clouds day. Lots of activities with the playground area. The very long beach has lots of sand and shallow for the younger children. You will love Juanita Bay Park.

I live ~2 blocks from Juanita Beach. It is an awesome place for families w/ BBQ grills, beach, vollebyall, pathways, boating, views of Lake Washington, and a few tucked away spaces as well.

Nice place to take a walk, view the Juanita bay and if you're a bird watcher, this might be on your "places to go" list. Several dedicated viewing decks and a bridge across the wetland offer the chance to see the local flora and fauna.
