Fun place to visit with the family. Parking can be a problem but a few times around the block and you can park pretty close if you get lucky like we did. I will say it's hard to get a good picture without someone else in the background but with a little patience and a fast finger Snap picture taken... More

This park has a wonderful view of Seattle and is a great place to sit down with a book or to go for a run - there are plenty of running trails that go through the park. You can also get a wonderful view of the 4th of July Fireworks from here, although it can get very crowded.

Just a piece of greenery with a hill and nice views of Downtown Seattle. Watch out for the seaplanes flying low overhead!

So the park has amazing views of the city, but there is no lighting after dark. I don't know if it was a fluke, but it was pitch black. There were other people milling around and in the dark everyone looks shady. We couldn't see the structure in the park at all, so I can't comment on that. I'd say... More

From what we read, this is one of the must-see places. We took the train to the university and then walked a nice walking/biking paved trail. That was the best part of finding this park. It was not quite what we were expecting. We did enjoy looking at Seattle from the other side, but we had to dodge goose poop... More

It's a beautiful park at the end of the waterfront. Beautiful small hills you can sunbathe, have a picnic and enjoy the view. It's also pretty quiet so you get a lot of folks relaxing on the grass in the Summers. Great for strolling around as well. There's not a ton of sculptures or anything to see. But the view... More
