Seward Park can be very busy during the summer months. Rainy day visits are a favorite of mine. The trails tend to be empty. It is one the gems of the Seattle Parks department. If you haven't been you need to plan a visit.

Gorgeous views and an amazing 2 Mike walk around the loop! A must see! There are picnic areas and swimming in the summer with life guards. Truly a special place!

Such a stunning park for a nice long walk next to Lake Washington under a canopy of old growth trees. Toward the end of the walk the lake curved into a small bay containing what felt like thousands of lily pads with pink and white...More
