Incredible public park. Beautiful scenery and most importantly, it's safe! My children love the playground and seeing all the water birds. Beautiful view of Lake Washington.

They keep this park very clean and well maintained from summer through winter. I should know as I live in the apartments next door and hear the people with the leaf blowers in the early AM. The only downfall is the parking. Often people can't find parking and I think the park nearby at the Landing and walk to the... More

Beautiful park and walkways close to two great restaurants, Ivars And Kidd Valey. Water is too polluted for local swimming but boating and sailing are fine. Some Magnificent sunsets during the spring and early summer. Great parking and place for concerts or picnics.

I've spent a lot of time at this park. It was my childhood destination every summer by riding my bike from my parents house, playing with my friends, maybe flirting with some girls (not well, I was all of 14 at the time), or generally trying to soak in some sun. As an adult, I have come to appreciate this... More

Now that we are getting warm temps and sunny days it's a great time to visit Coulon Park. It's free ans easy to find. It right across the street from where I teach so it's easy to visit.

The dock is a great walk, out over the water. There are benches so you can sit and watch the water and sunset. Lots of parking. There are restaurants, a hamburger shop and a fish shop. Lots of space for eating outside.

Coulon Park is situated on the south end of Lake Washington. It is a great place for a stroll along the lake shore, with a wide range of sights, from the Boeing 737 factory on one end, a boat launch and fishing pier in the middle, all the way to a sailboat pier on the other end, with turtles on...
