Now that Seattle is getting a fair amount of warm and hot weather it's a perfect time to visit Madison Beach. There normally is plenty of parking within walking distance. Lots of places nearby to get something to eat or drink.

Madison beach has a mix of open and shaded areas, lovely clean and warm water, a supervised swimming section and lovely places to eat/drink nearby. It's safe for little ones as the gradient into the water is very gradual.

This was such a fun afternoon! Grass instead of sand but lots of space and Rainier was out in her glory. Great place to spend the afternoon.
