  • It's somewhat hard to find a sandy beach in Bellevue but Meydenbauer Park is great for kids. sometimes the sea gets a little yucky with bird goop but all in all it's a great place to go. Limited shade...  more »

  • 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.
  • Great Escape from downtown Bellevue. Easy walk from most hotels and the city center. Quiet, tranquil and beautiful. Not much of a swimming place though...
  • 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.
  • Great spot. Secluded. Great for swimming and bbq
  • Pretty fun place to bring your kids with the swimming areas and playground. It also has a nice picnic area
