Besides showing off Seattle at it's natural best, Lincoln park is very easy to access from downtown Seattle via Metro Transit's Rapid Ride C Line bus service. You catch the bus on 3rd Avenue heading South, and ride right to the park entrance. With service every 15 minutes throughout the day, this is the most convenient way to visit one of Seattle's premier parks. (http://metro.kingcounty.gov/schedules/673/n0.html)

This park has a beach, trails, a playground and a pool. You can walk through trees and hear ravens. Easy to get to even on public transportation. The ferry is directly south and a few blocks north of the park, there are restaurants and a great pub.

Drive to West Seattle, or take the 'C' line (bus beats slogging through the jammed roads). When you get to the Park, pick any trail or walkway in and start exploring... just don't trample the forest floor! Head West and you'll get to the Puget Sound - the easy paths are at the South and North ends, but the best way through is any path in between (some very steep). Pick your suitable weather clothing and good hiking shoes and go anytime - ever changing experience.

People will often go to Alki Beach when in West Seattle with its long beach and view of downtown.
However, if you want more trails in big trees or a walk along the water in a less crowded area, go to this park.
There are playing fields, jungle gyms and swings for the kids, occasional Shakespeare performances, a BIG salt water swimming pool open in summer and a view of Puget Sound near the ferry dock. A nice, big park in the residential neighborhood of Fauntleroy.

This my neighborhood park so I walk it nearly every day. It's beauty and grandeur always energizes me. The park is muti-layered. The interior consists of lovely forests and meadows with connecting trails. You can get lost a bit wandering from one open space to a patch of trees.

The views from above look west to the Olympic range, Vashon and Blake Island. Breathtaking! You can walk the path next to the beach which is wide and framed by lush trees. There are concrete slabs marked WPA which shows the park's rich history. Coleman pool, the only saltwater pool in the city, dominates Williams Pt.

Eagles often soar above and I've been trailed by dolphins in the water. Fauntleroy ferry dock stands on the south end making this park a picture postcard. The Olmstead Brothers designed a stunning park; a special place in West Seattle.

Lincoln Park is incredibly scenic. It's right on Puget Sound and it's very pleasant to watch the ferries come in and out. There's a pool, lots of playground equipment, and really nice picnic shelters you can reserve and use the BBQ's. One of my favorite Seattle parks.

We arrived in Seattle in the evening, and since we wanted a look at the Puget Sounds, it was suggested we go to Lincoln Park. So glad we did! It was a lovely area on the beach of the Puget Sound. There was great landscaping, the beach was clean, and the walkways were very nice We saw lots of clam shells and seaweed. Apparently sea lion pups will sometimes end up on the shore here. Great spot for great views.

Gorgeous park! Checks off all our boxes...scenery, safe walking, waterfront, play areas, clean and accessible, picnic tables, trees and some “off-road” walking.

Huge green park with access to the water (not sure if dogs can swim in there but they were wet)! The views are breathtaking and if you are lucky (really lucky) you can see orkas or seals or sea lions pop up out of the water. Parking was free and easy and perfect for a nice day to be outside with friends or family.
