“Fall in the park is the best”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Not over crowded like in the summer, you can actually get a seat and have a picnic, hunt for some sea glass without tripping over massive amounts of people.

“Great playground, great beach”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Stopped by here for a few hours with some friends. Four adults and four small children one evening before dinner. Kids played on great playground on the beach and then played in the sand while adults watched and enjoyed the gorgeous backdrop. Would definitely spend more time here in the future.

“One of my favorite spots in the world”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

No many spots I have been to combine beautiful views of mountains, water, and trees in quite so peaceful a way, so close to the city. Add in the beautiful sunsets, sailboats from the marina, and trains running ever so rhythmically in the backdrop and you've got yourself quite a romanticized setting. Also, a great place for a bon fire and a bottle of wine.

“Great place to hang out”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Once I got past my disappointment that one cannot swim here (much too cold!), I really came to love this beautiful beach park. There are places to cook out and picnic as well as a playground. There is a building with bathrooms and a snack concession stand. The beach is large and clean.
There are a number of firepits on the beach. Pick up some firewood at any supermarket and come before sundown to watch the beautiful sunset from your firepit while toasting marshmallows. Pick a night when there will be a full moon but get there early to get a firepit. Making a fire that is not in a firepit will get you in trouble as the park is regularly patrolled.

“Fantastic views”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Visit this beach anytime of the year for fantastic views of the Puget Sound and Olympic mountain range. Calm and peaceful. You can also play volleyball if you want.
