A small beach with lifeguards. Lawn, sloping towards Washington Lake, close to the floating bridge. Good, relaxed, family friendly atmosphede with beachgoers of all ages. Not very noisy or hectic.

This was such a fun afternoon! Grass instead of sand but lots of space and Rainier was out in her glory. Great place to spend the afternoon.

My husband and I travelled to Seattle in our Van for the Blue Jays vs Mariners games. We love the quick 15 min drive to Madison Park, were we can park and stay for the night (discretely of course). There are open public washrooms, cafe's, restaurants, bars and groceries. You can swim at the public beach as well.

Beautiful architecture, we love walking the neighborhood checking out the houses.

This is a small park located right on Lake Washington. Madison Park is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in which to live. In the summer this is a place where people come and sunbathe and swim. There are places to eat very near by.

At the very end (East) of Madison Street lies the urban village of Madison Park and its beach. Once a separate village, the city of Seattle swallowed Madison Park many years
ago. One hundred years ago it was an amusement park to which the city people flocked. On a hot summer day, they flock there for the beach on Lake Washington. The village itself is not large but has several good restaurants, the usual number of banks, a small market, hardware store, etc. It also has a nicely appointed playground and two tennis courts. The beach is basically grass, staffed by lifeguards during the summer. Its only drawback are the goose droppings. For whatever reason, the city can't work up the nerve to evict these pests. Bring a blanket and you should be ok. The water's great---just watch where you walk.
