One of the nicest parks in all of Seattle. Groves of old growth trees are clustered along the shores of Lake Washington.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Bring your binoculars – this park is home to a few bald eagles visitors can watch glide over Lake Washington in search of their dinner.
Located near Lake Washington, Seward Park sprawls over 300 acres, with paths for biking, trails for hiking and gardens for taking time to slow down and smell the roses. The park is also home to several playgrounds for the kids, beaches for those warm Seattle summer days, picnic zones, amphitheater and an art studio.
While you're there, visit the Environmental and Audubon Center near the entrance, often featuring fun activities and exhibits for families.
