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.

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.

There are not many amenities here, but it is a good park with a beautiful view of the Puget Sound. I recommend coming here on a date or for a sunset.

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.
