  • Easily one of my favorite places to bring my dog. Pretty cool for people. Parking lot gets kind of packed so come early or just be patient and wait for parking. Or park in the backup lot of you don't mind walking a little extra. Also a great playground if you have kids. Lots of grass to put out a blanket and eat/drink
  • We were there at the dog park around 9:30 or so on a weekday and there were a handful of dogs all playing in and around the water. Owners all seemed conscientious and aware which is always nice. Relatively small park but is very nice nonetheless with a smattering of trees and of course the water access is huge. Ultimately we stayed about an hour and only a couple of other dogs remained for that time, so the activity was a little disappointing but overall great park!
  • It is amazing to visit this fantastic relaxing part with 3/4 mile of water front. Nearby waterfront is filled with multi-million dollar houses, some with million dollar yacht. Park is very well maintained, it is a wonderful place to go with kids, walk your dogs, or just to have walk along the waterfront trail. From the east and north side of the waterfront, Bellevue and I90 bridge are nice view, at the west end, Downtown Seattle is at a not-too-far horizon.
  • A pleasant park to walk and enjoy the waterfront. It's the beginning part of Mercer Island half marathon route. Very scenic. A few picnic benches, public restrooms and playground.
  • Scenic and safe walk with well maintained plants and paths. Great dog park if that's your thing, and has some cooler detours along Lake Washington for warmer days.
