Owner description: For one of the best views of Seattle head to Kerry Park, a small park located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill.  A photo from here is Seattle postcard-perfect, featuring ferries crossing Elliott Bay, the city skyline with the Space Needle in the forefront and, if weather conditions are favorable, a view of Mt. Rainier.

Quick and easy stop, this is a must-see for tourists visiting Seattle. Try to go on a clear day for the spectacular view of the city and waterfront from Queen Anne hill..

“Best view in Seattle.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

This is a small park but a photographer's dream. The views of the Space needle, the waterfront, and on clear days Mount Rainier are awesome. There's a cool sculpture that also makes a great place for a photo.

“The Quintessential Seattle View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

The Space Needle, city skyline, the sound and ferries, and Mount Rainier in the background. What more can you ask for? Also, if you continue west a few blocks down West Highland Drive there's another gorgeous view, of the Sound and Olympic mountain range.

“Kerry Park at Night- Bring your Camera”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

n unsurpassed view of Elliott Bay and the Central City, with an occasional backdrop of Mount Rainier, draws camera buffs to this spot. At sunset they often line the wall just as the city and the sound are beginning to glow with lights. At night it becomes almost a fantasy scene, with brightly lit ferries gliding across the water and the Space Needle shining from its 500-foot pedestal.

“A cute place offering beautiful views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Kerry park is 15 min drive from downtown Seattle but offers wonderful views towards the city and Mount Rainier. We took a lot of pictures of the Space Needle form there.
It's a little city park and there is no admission fee. There are parking spots nearby for free.
