We stayed about a block away from one of the entrances to this relatively small park and fell in love with it at first sight. As soon as you take a step, the outside world disappears, and although you still know it's there, you've entered...More

If you have a car when touring Seattle, find this park, a short distance north of the downtown area. While the park itself is pretty, the views from the beach of the sound and Olympics are wonderful. You may also see some close ups of...More

Our last stop before leaving Seattle and it did not disappoint. Plenty of picnic tables up the hill and a few down closer to the water. Saw a few walking trails but didn’t have much time to explore. Great views and easy beach access.

This busy park was close to the place we rented while staying in Seattle. We went to the park one evening to watch the sunset and it's a nice park on the water with lots of activity. There were birthday parties, kids playing soccer, and...More

Stopped by here on a cool Sunday. There was a good crowd but not packed. Walked across the walkway to the beach. The park has nice trails and is very wooded as well as having the nice beach. On a nicer day we will picnic...More

This is one of my favorite parks in the city. The park is huge. There are tons of trails, including one that runs down along a creek. There are signs about the salmon runs, but I haven't actually seen any yet. We have seen other...More

Every time I come to Seattle, I love to go and walk at Carkeek Park. There are numerous paths beyond the main path that starts from behind the QFC on Holman street and leads to the waterfront. The main path is hilly only at the...More
