  • very secluded feeling. has a nice swim area with rare open water lap lanes and lifeguards during the season. fishing off the dock seems to be reliable. great for picnics/relaxing/swimming or just getting away for a little while. limited parking but park is somewhat unknown so not usually too hard to find a spot. Update, the city of bellevue recently bought adjacent property and has completely torn the entire park and properties down to dirt. They are rebuilding to what looks like will be an exceptional waterfront park, with expanded everything. The only downside is that this place will not be the hidden hard to access place it used to be so expect a lot more visitors. Not completely sure when it will be done but until then keep driving west to one of the 3 other semi unknown waterfront parks in the vicinity.
  • The view is lovely. The playground is small and gets very hot in summer. The picnic benches attracts a bee or two once you open your lunchboxes, so eat fast! The ducks swim, fly and walk about and will happily eat the food you accidentally drop on the ground... a joy to watch. There's a small beach with sand, and a swimming area, with a lifeguard on duty. A good place to spend an afternoon at.
  • This is probably the most popular waterfront park in the area. There are usually a few people there, but it's not crowded. I like to do a hill / stair workout here because there are 4 long staircases as well as a climb up to 98th Ave NE. It's under construction and expansion until summer 2017. The playground is not open right now.
  • Update from April 2017: park is closed for construction till Fall 2018. Love this park! It's cosy. There is barbecue area.
  • Amazing views here. This is where you can spend some time on a sunny day and.... Read, picnic,
