Unbelievable park right on the bluffs overlooking the Sound. Restful, had great benches to relax and see the unbelievable color and lushness of the park.

Very relaxing with unique plants for the area. Love the story behind the park. Chetzemoka is buried in one of the local cemetaries as well.

Well visiting Port Townsend we came upon this park by accident. This place was so peaceful, with its birds, squirrels and most of all deer. Right by the water with nice walking paths, a gazebo and lots of places to sit and watch nature.

Pleasant hour spent walking in park and on beach. Would be lovely picnic spot, or a place to bring children to play on swings.

There are very few places that pack as much beauty and serenity into such a small area. The wisteria is gorgeous. The gazebo and surrounding plants are magical. You don't have to spend a lot of time here but do have to visit and be...More
