Spend some time in this park. Nice walkways, good scenery. At the south end, pull into the parking area and see Port Angeles (USA) and Hurricane Ridge across the strait.

It’s a lovely park with many different lawns, flower beds, and ponds full of waterfowl. The petting zoo inside the park is a fun destination for young and old. Many walking paths.
