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.

We walked to Kerry Park which was a bit of a hike, but well worth it. The hill is similar to walking in San Francisco- steep! The homes are lovely in this area. Old mansions that have been transformed into apartments. On a clear day you can see all the way to Rainier. Enjoyed this view more than the Space... More

Outstanding views of the city from Kerry Park. Well worth the drive. Only takes a few minutes to get there from downtown Seattle. If you want that ultimate Seattle skyline photo, this park provides a great vantage point.

The views from this park are absolutely stunning. It is quite a drive from the city, but well worth it. Get your cameras ready for some great pictures, especially beautiful at sunset.

If you have friends in town, be sure to make a quick stop by this park. They will be amazed by the view of downtown Seattle, Mount Rainier, and Elliot Bay. I've lived in this city for over 20 years, but I'm still awed by the beauty whenever I visit this park with friends or family.

I'm so glad I came across this location from a visitor's magazine! It's up on a big hill that overlooks downtown for the most amazing pictures. Sunset was the perfect time to go!

We didn't know about Kerry Park until someone at our hotel told us. This was a great place to take pictures of the Seattle Skyline and to see the Space Needle from a distance. There is nothing to do here but is a quick Uber ride from Pike's Place if you're interested.

The title says it all. Gas Works is probably a more unique and spread out park to view Seattle but Kerry Park is truly beautiful and deserves a visit.

Perfect for just a 15 min visit. There is nothing to this "park" outside of the view of Seattle. Take a taxi there, see the view ... and then get on with your day. We viewed during the day. Great spot to get pictures.

It is definitely worth the short cab or uber ride here to take some amazing photos of the Seattle city skyline!
