Fun beach park when the weather is nice! There are 2 big play structures at the playground, as well as a little island that you can quickly explore. They’ve been doing some construction on that island for a while, but hopefully it’ll re-open it soon....More

All of the park is nice but the city of Renton runs the boat launch very bad. There is no flexibility when it comes to launching and retreaving your boat. On a busy weekend boats are lined up out of the park and down the...More

Animal control was rude and condescending. He told our family he was almost going to take our golden retriever, who was on a leash, well behaved, and headed to board our boat. The lack of professionalism was unbelievable.

This park offers a nice ambience to walk around the lake waters and then enjoy 'Fish & Chips' at Ivars which is located within the park.

This park is a great place to walk, run, swim, or just chill. The trail goes along side the lake. Plenty to see as you can watch the boats coming and going and all the activity.

This was one my first date spots with my now fiancé. We love the location. Very good view of the lake. A nice little walk along the water with a view all around. If you have a family, they have a little beach with lifeguards...More

Great location to run and walk. The playground is very kid friendly as well! The location is great as it's by local eateries, shopping, freeways and more!

Yes most of the walking area is paved. I believe there are small trails that branch off the main one that are just dirt but the main path is all paved.
