Easy to get to, easy on the eyes, the view of Seattle that everyone wants to get a photo of. The parking lot is not huge, but people are always coming and going.

Our tour operator took us up for some great pictures of the Seattle skyline, It is also a good place to just sit on a park bench and relax and enjoy the sights.

This small park is worth the drive and there is usually parking available! The view is amazing and the surrounding homes are beautiful. Depending on the weather, you can spend about an hour relaxing and taking pictures.

The view of the cityscape is nice (just that! nothing extraordinary) and in open atmosphere days you can get a good shot from the Space Needle together with Mount Rainier. The place itself has nothing more to offer (it is a simple park). So, my...More

A view of Seattle downtown. Quick stop in downtown for a landmark picture. Great neighborhood to explore in the area. Need a picture to show you are in Seattle - go for it. Tight schedule, skip it.

Very small park build to view the downtown area. We went at 9pm so had plenty of space to set up out tripod for photos. Not much to photograph except the space needle and downtown, but a better spot cannot be found. Parking is limited.

Getting too close to the space needle for a pic gets you proportions all out of whack. So what you are really looking for is Kerry Park where it is an absolutely gorgeous back drop for that perfect couples pic. You will love it. It...More

Kerry Park is a small famous park in a neighborhood just south of downtown Seattle. The view is nothing short of spectacular, especially if the weather is nice (it was for us). You can see Mt. Ranier in the distance, and many, many (many!) people...More

Absolutely spectacular views. An amazing place to sit and look over the most beautiful city ever. On clear day you can literally see forever. Bring a jacket and wear good walking shoes, you may need to park and walk to the park.

This is definitely worth the walk; uphill. The views over the city are great. Many people stopped on tour buses, but we walked up from the city. It’s worth the effort, and it’s downhill back!! I would recommend spending some time here to soak in...More

Worth it. Favor the right side of the park and arrive at dusk when the city lights turn on. At night you lose Rainier. During the day, the cranes will distract from your image.

I think there's a bus stop nearby. I recommend using Google Maps. There's always Uber. I would NOT recommend walking from Lower Queen Anne, because the hill is VERY steep. It's a very small park with some play equipment. The... More

The most important is a clear day. I prefer to arrive one hour before sunset and stay till it's dark.
