- Hidden away in the southern reaches of West Seattle, this park is, in many respects, the ultimate archetype of a Seattle park. Big but not too big, woodsy but not too densely forested, everything is just right. The beach is perfect for exploring, the meadows just right for Frisbee and the picnic areas nicely sheltered. And, Colman Pool (open only in the summer) lets you experience the salty waters of Puget Sound without the icy temperatures or the filth. If that doesn't provide waves enough, walk out of the park to the south and hop the ferryboat for a scenic 15-minute ride over to Vashon Island.
