  • Great little downtown park with wonderful Lake Washington views. Easy walking distance from hotels and Lincoln Square shops and restaurants/ very small beach for children 
  • A great little park with gorgeous views. I wish it was larger with a much wider and longer pier, but all in all worth going to for an hour or 2 
  • Sweet little beach park hidden in downtown Bellevue! It can be easy to miss the entry to the park when driving since it's a narrow road that curves downhill. Has a play area for children, restrooms, picnic tables and a lifeguard on duty during the summer.
  • Peaceful environment with a pleasant scenic beauty.
  • Pretty fun place to bring your kids with the swimming areas and playground. It also has a nice picnic area
  • Good view of the water. Nice playground for the kids. The overhead bridge is a nice architectural touch.
  • Nice secluded park with life guard and swimming lanes . Not too crowded.
