As a former base, Magnuson Park is huge with tons of activities, including one of the best off-leash dog parks in the area. It’s also right along Lake Washington - with amazing views.

This was once a US Navy airfield called "Sandpoint", built on the edge of Lake Washington, an ideal place to test seaplanes. In the fifties, the base was turned into a park named for Washington Senator Warren Magnuson. Its a large park that's usually pretty...More

Be sure to put on your walking shoes if you visit the park because the trails are extensive. We actually docked a boat and walked around for quite awhile. Lots of places to meander and very kid and dog friendly. Great for nature lovers.
