For one of the best views of Seattle head to Kerry Park, a small park located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill.  A photo from here is Seattle postcard-perfect, featuring ferries crossing Elliott Bay, the city skyline with the Space Needle in the forefront and, if weather conditions are favorable, a view of Mt. Rainier.

I would barely consider this something to do, but it made for a nice photo opp. It's more of a look out than a park. It does give great views of the city, however, as other reviewers have said there is plenty of construction at...More

The land for Kerry Park was donated to the city of Seattle because they felt that the view was meant to be shared. We stopped at the park on our Hop on Hop off tour of the Northern area of Seattle.

This is a park that gives a great view of the Seattle skyline. The steep hills to get there remind me of San Francisco. You will be glad that you went. We did get a few nice photos.

We stopped here last time during the day, but this trip we headed up at night. Parking is an issue, but just be patient and something will open up.

Worth it. Favor the right side of the park and arrive at dusk when the city lights turn on. At night you lose Rainier. During the day, the cranes will distract from your image.
