  • This is a public park owned by the City of Bellevue. It is clean and well maintained. It is currently being upgraded but, will reopen for the summer.  more »
  • The title says most of it. This is a pretty beach and picnic area on the shores of Lake Washington. It's super small, though, so not really great for much other than lying on the beach for a bit. Ther...  more »
  • This was a park I found on Google Maps, one that you could actually get to the lake. It was a nice walk from the downtown area. It is pretty under the bridge, but like others noted the construction li...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Amazing views here. This is where you can spend some time on a sunny day and.... Read, picnic,
