You won't find gold here, nor gardens, but with all the sand, sun and surf on this lovely beach, you won't even notice.

This is probably one of the best beaches available in Seattle proper. Public restrooms available along with some BBQ pits. Parking gets tight as the lot fills up fast on summer weekends. You may have to park up the hill a bit.....but definitely worth it.

One of the two man-made beaches in Seattle that people comes always every summer. Lots of people playing volleyball, good place for a barbecue/picnic and watch the sunset. Music all over.

Nice, clean park with a wonderful playground for kids. It also has beautiful beaches to walk along as well as trails. It is very room, so you don't feel crowded at all.

This was a nice community beach on the Puget Sound. It is very different than most east coast/Florida beaches in a number of ways. First there is a major area of rocks right at the waterline, so it looks uncomfortable and smells a little "seaweed-y"....More

This park is a very nice place to hang out, play volleyball, bbq with family and friends. Parking can be a real problem especially during the weekends.

This is a perfect beach for a small wedding. The sun setting in the background. Sand beneath your feet. Water lapping on the shore. Be patient if you want to park near the beach or just park above and walk down. Simply beautiful.
