“Pure Northwest”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

It's a park but the place is mostly wild, overgrown woods with some nice paths to the water. Ellis Cove is a historic Indian trading area.
If you are from California or another dry state this park will be a good introduction to the NW, plant life and water everywhere.

I liked the drive out there, the trails in the woods and the memorial garden.

Reviewed March 27, 2012

Lovely area but not much parking. You get to look out over part of Puget Sound.

“Must see park!”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Priest Point is a gorgeous park with many different options for entertainment. There is a playground, hiking trails, and areas for cookouts and get-togethers. It's a great place to spend time outdoors!

“Park land”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

A lot of walking trails, some go down to the beach, but don't expect a sandy area - it has small pebbles, rounded by the tides, so wear good footwear
