“Walking in Carkeek park”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Great place for walking. There is a wide trail going pass an apple orchard and winding up a long trail. Also, nice place to walk on the beach and watch the trains go by. Good picnic area and play area.

“Nice little escape from the city”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Good place to drop down among trees and escape the bustling suburb surrounding this park. Walk down to the water along a small creek. Be prepared for an occasional whiff of sewer from the water treatment plant but hey, you're in a city - what can you expect.

“Solitude in the city”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The trail system offers hiker and runners enough up and down with views of the Olympics and the Puget Sound to make the trip a refreshing one.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

This park is tucked away adjacent to a Seattle neighborhood. It's off the beaten path, but well worth the visit. It has a very private feel, magnificent views of Puget Sound, walking trails with a forest feel, a nice grassy children's play area with swings and lovely views, and some picnic shelters where you can barbecue. There is also a pedestrian bridge that goes over railroad tracks, when you hear a train approaching it's great fun to stand overhead and count the cars flashing by just below you. The bridge goes directly over the rail tracks and then has stairs to a beach below. HIghly recommended.

“I am 84 years old and spent many summer family outings there while growing up”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

It use to be a nice quiet , family place for picnic's, playing baseball, sitting and talking together, birthday gatherings, out door baby shower, climbing the hill above the waters edge, fishing off the long walking bridge out over the sound. Many, many good memories for all ages to enjoy back then!
