I have been here hundreds of times. As a child and as an adult. Now with children of my own. Laid back and quiet for the relaxing picknick or a short nature hike. 5 star for ease of access, relaxation, and entertainment for the kids.

Beautiful city park with numerous walking paths, good birding (Pacific wrens), restrooms, covered picnic area, and a wonderful rose garden in bloom while we were there.

The trails are quite varied. Some have a few steep hills others or rather easy. The walk to the beach is pretty easy close to the parking lot. A very nicely to take a nature break!

This park has something for everyone. A playground for small children, areas to BBQ and have gatherings at, picnic tables, and trails to hike. You can hike all the way to the water. Our family had a great time here!

What can be said? It's the Pacific Northwest, so it's beautiful! Priest Point Park is a lovely little get away for a nice, quiet walk, a lunch, or just an opportunity to unwind.

The best place to go and play in the water is Tolmie State Park. Other sand beaches are mostly private.
