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.

I'm pretty sure this is where all the photos of that you see where the Space Needle looks taller than the buildings downtown are taken. The park is free, and just after sunset, is a great place to go either by yourself to sit and think, or with that special someone to share the view. Loved it

Parking is challenging around sunset, but the view is so worth it. Clear day, and you see snow-capped Mt. Rainier hovering over the Seattle skyline.

If you want a great picture, this is the place. Great view of the city, Space Needle, waterfront and Mount Rainier on a clear day. If you are walking prepare for an uphill battle. We drove and we were able to find parking right in front but it could be a challenge. Surrounding neighborhood is beautiful as well.

Kerry Park is small in size and not what one thinks of when you hear 'park.' The streets leading up to the park are steep. If you plan on staying for a while or until it gets dark, bring food, snacks and something to sit on. There are benches but they may be occupied. There are no restrooms. The view of Seattle from Kerry Park is great and so is the neighborhood.

Surprisingly this is the best place to take some shots of Seattle pier and Space needle with the mountain behind.

You can park in the nearby street and easy to find a place. Must stop and it is located north of Seattle.
