Boating, play at the park, roller skate, skateboard, walk ur dog or have a picnic. If you don't want to pack a picnic they have great restaurants on site like kid valley and... More

Good parking..quick bathroom break, (clean) fish and chips on the pier..even with the gray sky it was a nice stop.. I can see where they might have a problem if the sun comes out..Parking is pretty tight for the size of the park..

This is a nice walk without having to worry about stepping in dog poop or jump out of the way of skateboards since neither are allowed.

Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park is located on the very southern tip of Lake Washington and is a wonderful diversion for the tired tourist who would like to put their feet up (or dip them in the cool waters of the lake) and enjoy a lazy day in a peaceful setting. For the tykes, there is a play area with... More

This beautiful local park has a little bit of everything. In the Spring there are lots of flowers in bloom. The walking trail follows the shore of Lake Washington. Because it follows the lake it is a flat walk. In Summer there is a great beach with swimming area. Also the boat launch is humming. There are two on site... More

Fair warning - on hot days, this place is a zoo, and you will not find parking. But if you get here early enough, you can stake our some shade under a tree, let the kids wade in the somewhat-enclosed water area (there is a roped-off area for more skilled swimmers). There are a couple of food places down the... More
