A marvelous, versatile park. Leave your car in the lower parking lot, cross the bridge over the railroad tracks and walk on the beach! Come back to the parking lot and take the stairs up to the pirate ship playground! There's also a human sundial....More

Many areas to be alone To meditate or to have a group gathering, tables available by the beach or on upper level, great place to get exercise up the stairs, down the beach or the upper trail. One of my favorite places close to home.

We went here hoping to see tide pools, but ended up having a great time any way despite no tide pools! We loved the nice beach area to walk and explore! Also, great parking and nice playground. Easy access to beach!

Had some extra time and I wanted to walk a bit. This saltwater park is great for the whole family. Lots of parking in various terraced lots as you drop down the hill to the beach. It is just south of the Edmonds ferry terminal....More

Nice views of the sound. Great stair run - 200 steps from the lower parking lot to the upper entrance - even has a stair run counter at the top to keep track of how many runs you do.

Ready for a nice steep safe walk downhill or steep car drive down? The view at the top is spectacular! The skyblue skyline was beautiful. Today there were no clouds. There you can see the ferry ships. See Mt. Rainer mountain range. Smell the salt...More

Had to get away from the hustle and bustle of town and located this gem on the map. A yoga group was just finishing up and then we were swarmed by 3 school buses of children! Still a beautiful spot to check out the ocean...More

We came back to our favorite local workout site. From the park entrance to the lower parking lot, there is a stair climb of 188 steps. It also has several exercise stations at the stair breaks and a counter board at the top. It’s rarely...More

We've frequented this park for the sunset views. It is not too crowded and usually go there for a quick stroll by the shoreline but there is a little bit of a walk down a trail and crossing over a bridge where the train tracks...More

It's not your typical beach with tons of dry sand and waves crashing on the shores. It's mostly large pieces of driftwood, lots of rocks, and gentle waters. But it's cool and in the morning, it's mystic with the fog covering the trees and lands...More
