“Very large diverse park”

Warren G. Magnuson Park
Ranked #113 of 453 things to do in Seattle
Attraction details
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Not downtown, but in Northeast Seattle, this is the park that I visit most. It has several parts including a long stretch of Lake Washington shoreline which includes a boat launching area There is a new extensive area of restored wet lands with wonderful native vegetation and waterfowl. There is a "kite hill", popular for kite flying an an extensive open dog area. Much of this park contains the remnants of the Sand Point Naval. There are play fields, tennis courts, community gardens and much more. Various festivals are often held here and parking is easy. A great place to spend a few hours or a day, perfect for walking. Great place to see waterfowl ad frequently bald agles and osprey

I was stationed briefly at Sand Point when it was still a navy base in the 1980s. Now it's a multi-use park with swimming beaches, boat ramps, soccer pitches, and picnic areas. There is a section in the park where a local artist embedded the sail fins from submarines being scrapped in Bremerton into the ground to appear like a pod of whales swimming along the grass. Nice family outing destination.

I go here frequently, usually with my dog. This parl has a huge fenced dog park with lake access. There is a hill that is full of kiters during the summer, there is a kids playground, many trails, places for picnicing and sunbathing. There are acres of suburban park areas, iparking, it is clean and there are lots of activities during the summer including expos and trade shows.

This park is not downtown, but is worth the short drive if you would like to look at the only place I have ever heard of that has established a memorial to the WWII Submariners. There are 22 of dive fins from those submarines

Came here at 4-5ish in the early morning to catch the sunrise with my boyfriend and was it beautiful!! Best place was through the dog run and at the end towards the lake. Watching the sunrise over Lake Washington was definitely breath taking. You also get the added benefit of walking past the sound garden sculpture in NOAA territory and even hear its eerie wonder. As Soundgarden fans, it made the trip to the park 100 times memorable.
