  • I travel alone to Bellevue often and like to take walks to explore. The entrance to the park is in a residential on the periphery of downtown and I came across it while wandering about early one morni...  more »
  • 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

  • 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
