For one of the best views of Seattle head to Kerry Park, a small park located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill.  A photo from here is Seattle postcard-perfect, featuring ferries crossing Elliott Bay, the city skyline with the Space Needle in the forefront and, if weather conditions are favorable, a view of Mt. Rainier.

Picture perfect view of the city!

Kerry Park gives you the perfect view of the city! If you make the walk up there, just be prepared for some steep hills and stairs; or you can always uber.

My wife and I drove up to Queen Anne as we were leaving Seattle after having spent the weekend downtown. Kerry park is by far the best view of downtown Seattle, the sound and surround area. It's less than a ten minute drive from downtown and def worth it. A lot of the cool city photos/art u find at the... More

Get your GPS programmed and go see the view from Kerry Park. It was spectacular! We went at dusk, but I think anytime of day would be great.

We were able to make a stop here both at night and during the day. It was nice to see the city lit up at night, but beware it is COLD so we didn't stay very long. On the day we went, it was kinda foggy but we were able to get a great view and takes some nice pictures.... More

Amazing park for a great view of Seattle skyline and the space needle. It's a small park on a small narrow street. Although most all of the streets in the Seattle area are narrow. We plan on going back after dark for some more amazing pictures

A great little spot for that perfect view of Seattle. You can walk from downtown but about 30 minutes. We caught an Uber on the way back & was approx $6 You can also get a view of the Space Needle rather than being up the Space Needle and can't see it! :)

I was in Seattle for one afternoon as part of an extended lay over and the ONE thing I wanted to see was Mt. Rainier as a backdrop to the city and Kerry Park supplied this to me...and in spades! Incredible sight line. At some point along the way, I read that downtown is walkable...which it is. And because there... More

This is hands down the best view of Seattle!It is not so such a park as a viewing area and on a nice day it can get a bit busy.

Kerry Park, located on Queen Ann Hill, offers what is in my opinion, the best view of Seattle. In one photo you can capture the water, iconic Space Needle and if it's clear enough, Mt Rainier. The park is in a residential area offering only limited street parking, but because so many people come to take photos and leave you... More

Kerry park is a small park with stunning views of Seattle and surrounds. The iconic skyline featuring the Space Needle is one not to be missed. The photo opportunities are endless however much better on a clear day. The ideal time to visit Kerry Park would be just as the sun is setting in order to get some gorgeous sunset photos... More
