I have been going here for many years, never grow tired of it. This is one instance where development was for the best, cause I used to go here as a teenager before they built it. The trees are beautiful – – sequoias, and all kinds planted. Lots of birdlife turtles rabbits to watch. Fun for kids. It has a... More

I like Jean Coulon for when I feel like I want to take a walk or just be by the water. It's got nice walking trails and docks and the last time I was there I spotted a couple beavers swimming around in the water. I would have given it probably 3.5 stars rather than plain old 3 but didn't... More

We love this park. Fun to walk along the lake, look at boats, feed the ducks. In the summer we play at the beach. In winter we love the Christmas lights. And the playground is HUGE. This park is a gem.

Just a beautiful place on a sunny day to relax and watch my grandchildren play in this awesome play area and for just the right distance for a short walk. Easy to get to.

Most parks on the shorelines of Lake Washington have play ground but not all of them has the long walkable path can let you get over a hour exercise. The park has large lawn area, BBQ area, picnic area, a swimming area with a small man made "beach" and a public fire pit under the pavilion for parties. The most... More

Great place to come walk along the shore and get the view of Lake Washington. We come here with our two year old and he loves watching the ducks and seeing the boats out on the lake. We often stop in at Ivar's while we are here as a bonus!

It is a beautiful clean park on Lake Washington. There is plenty of playground equipment for the kids. There are volleyball courts. The beach is freshwater with lifeguards during the summer. I love to eat at Ivar's. At Christmastime I round up my family to see the Clam Lights.
