A very beautiful park and well worth the trip to Port Townsend, just for this one event. My wife and I went there last June when we were attending my grandson's graduation from college. We traveled all around this area and found this particular park to be a great stop.

As a Port Townsend resident, I have always had Chetzamoka Park for a playground. It is an easy access to the beach, with many activities - playground, picnic shelter, rose garden, gazebo and creek. It is a cool and relaxing spot to spend an outdoor day.

Nice little park right by the bay. Great place to take a book or picnic and just to hang out. Lovely place to relax.

This park, at the edge of town, features wide lawns, stately old trees, foot-operated bench swings (fun!), an arbor, a gazebo, and access to the rocky beach. Great for a walk, plus the water and mountain views are gorgeous.
