I think one of the pluses of living in Seattle is the city's proximity to salt water.
Carkeek Park not only allows a person to use the "k" sound twice in one word but does open up,also, a nice stretch of Puget Sound beach. I don't think I would put this in the swimmers beach category unless you are fond of splashing about in cold water...it is more for setting yourself down on a rock or a hunk of driftwood, breathing in some salt air and thinking, meditating, or reading a book.
If you like diesel locomotives heading up freight trains (and an occasional Amtrak) then you will particularly enjoy the view from the railroad pedestrian overpass that takes you to the beach.
To some the trains will be the highlight. To others the hiking trails. To others a picnic.
It is good that the city fathers had the foresight to carve out this niche of greenery for public use.
I find my visits to Carkeek Park always enjoyable.
