  • Large waterfront park close to downtown Renton. Boat ramp, kids play area, restaurant and lots of paths to keep you away from traffic. There's also a pavillion where you can take family or special eve...  more »

  • I like Jean Coulon for when I feel like I want to take a walk or just be by the water. It's got nice walking trails and docks and the last time I was there I spotted a couple beavers swimming around i...  more »

  • This place is great, but the walkway is kind of narrow for the amount of people that use it during peak times like weekends. The beach, when it's warm outside, is pretty busy. It's a nice walk along Lake Washington. But if you're looking for a long walk, like 5 miles or so, you won't find it here. Unless of course, you walk the path back and forth several times. Beautiful scenery with some patches of grass and benches were you can lay and soak up the sun.
  • So much to do in this area. You can bring your boat or water vehicles out there. There's a good walking area. Outdoor sports like volleyball, tennis, and horseshoes. You'll see people setup everywhere out here having picnics, BBQ'ing, playing games, you name it. The biggest issue here is parking. Get there early in the day if you can. If not, there's a shopping/living complex just south of it. You can park in their garage and walk over. It only adds maybe three minutes of walking. Also, the Parysol Cafe is there if you want to grab a little something before your time at the beach.
  • Great park, clean facilities, clean attire, limited parking for major events. Walking trail offers a 2-3 mile loop if you walk ever trail, walkway possible. Dozens of local events through the years. The only wildlife pests are the birds and their droppings. Gates closing nightly keep homeless population out. Most are on good behavior but there's always the crazystray that pops up occasionally. Pokemon Go players: 15-20 pokestops with 3-5 gyms through the park. Lots of water pokemon spawns. A rare spawn pops up occasionally. Regulars will stumble across them frequently.
  • Always tons of people here! I wish you luck in finding a parking spot. Plenty of pokestops and gyms. Cool dock to walk around. Ducks that mind their own on the left side of the beach. Really cool playground! Lifeguards around and there's a little shop that sells drinks, snacks, ice cream, floaties, goggles, sunscreen, etc. Very convenient. Amazing place to have a picnic or celebrate a birthday!
  • Great place for the family! Big park with lots to do and explore, playground, beach, open fields, swimming, duck Island, Ivars and Kid Valley! Great breeze on hot days! Negative is it can get really busy and parking can be almost impossible on nice weekends!
