We stumbled upon this great park. The flowers were in bloom and it was beautiful. The kids loved the tire swing (daddy was pushing them pretty high). Very relaxing time spent here and walked down to the beach. It is beautiful.

Unbelievable park right on the bluffs overlooking the Sound. Restful, had great benches to relax and see the unbelievable color and lushness of the park.

Very relaxing with unique plants for the area. Love the story behind the park. Chetzemoka is buried in one of the local cemetaries as well.

Well visiting Port Townsend we came upon this park by accident. This place was so peaceful, with its birds, squirrels and most of all deer. Right by the water with nice walking paths, a gazebo and lots of places to sit and watch nature.

This is a beautifully kept secret in Port Townsend. The park is lovely and right on the water. There is a gazebo there where band concerts are held. A short walk down to the shore, where you can walk along the beach, is a must....More
