“Great Free Entertainment”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Most people willingly hand over large amounts of money for the most mundane entertainment. Our family gets far more out of the free entertainment that's available daily. Scuba diving, the beach, low tide exploring, watching the ferry & the trains all in one spot with a fantastic sunset over the water. Sometimes we take breakfast down to Brackett's Landing and watch the birds and ferries. A seagull made a nest on someone's flat roof this year and we watched the furry little guys grow up.
If you take a walk south there is another beach along with restaurants & shops. Surprisingly, the restaurants are quite good.

“Brackett's Landing”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This is a great place for families to spend some time while in Edmonds. Many people take photos from here of the Puget Sound and the ferries.

“Walk the shoreline at sunset”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Brackett's Landing, a place where people gather to scuba dive next to the Edmond's Ferry, is also a great place to begin a walk along the waterfront. Going south it's about a mile walk to the dog park, along the boat docks, restaurants, and houses. It's especially lovely at low tide, or sunset.

“Urban Escape!”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

The promenade adjacent to the ferry terminal is one of the most popular sites for scuba divers in the Northwest, because there's a 27-acre underwater park here! If you're not a diver, it's a fine place to observe shore birds, to enjoy a picnic or a quiet moment, to relax on the shore and I'd recommend bringing a camera. Wedding photographs are often taken on the jetty. This is a Marine Protected Area, so marine life may not be disturbed or taken from the area. In summer, the gentle slope of the beach is refreshing for wading. It's an excellent place to scuba dive and snorkel!
Parking may be a problem, so I'd suggest getting here early (before 8:30 a.m.), but the turnover of spaces provides available parking as visitors leave. There is wheelchair access along the paved promenade, and there are restrooms. The serenity of the site is occasionally disturbed by the airhorns of nearby AmTrak and BNSF trains, but it's only a momentary disturbance. There are restaurants and shops within a convenient walking distance. In cooler months, Brackett's Landing is relatively uncrowded and quiet, a fine place to read, discuss or ponder the mysteries of life.

“Watch the Ferries Come and Go”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Stop by Starbucks for a cup of coffee, or Toshi's teriyaki, or Ivar's and bring your snack or lunch to this beach where there is always something happening. Watch the divers coming up after hours of spectacular diving, watch the ferries come and go, watch the elders do their tai-chi, watch the children play in the surf, digging holes and watching the marine creatures. Exit your car and cross to the park, across the ferry entry, where there is a very do-able walking path, and some beautifully crafted local sculptures, funded by the Edmonds arts committee and their fund raising efforts, all within sight and sound of the lapping waves.
