A quiet park along a ravine located in the middle of a busy cosmopolitan city and near a noble university with luxuriant trees, lawns, playgrounds, and a big footbridge in the middle section. Good for an hour's walk.

A seattle favorite, heavily treed, creeks, some homeless camps dampen the experience though

This is more of a walk than anything. Lots of people on bikes, and families with strollers. My 4 year olds weren’t really into this as it was more of a walk than hike. You will also find homeless tents and mess around.

Gorgeous oasis in the middle of a fairly busy neighborhoods. There are so many side trails and bridges to explore! My dog and I walk here frequently and still find new forks in the side trails often.

A small, quiet park with beautiful plants. Just several stops away from the U-District. I didn’t see homeless but since it’s quiet and I did find a crime report online, it’s still suggested to be careful.

What a great opportunity to get a dose of nature in the middle of the city! It's lush, green, quiet, and secluded.

Can be a one way trail... bus stops at both ends of the park. Paved trail has more bikes and runners for comfortable strolling. Creek is very pretty. Saw lots of birds including big Pileated Woodpecker who was taking a trailside log apart, paying no attention to camera-pointing walkers.

I would recommend this for anybody, including families. Make sure your oil is mostly shaded and long of Pleasant Creek. It is an easy-going walk.

A fun little trail. I did this with a 4 year old and it was about perfect. The people who said this was fine for a stroller were on drugs.

Beautiful and peaceful. It's Seattle though and the homeless will at times camp out here but in my many, many strolls through here, I've never had an issue with them.

It was nice, in general, with bridges, a creek, and nice trees, but compared to others, not great. It is poorly marked and there were a few tents and trash under the bridges. I went in the rain just to get out, and it served my purpose, but I'll look for another trail next time. Given it's awesome location, I might be back with a better review.

I have run this a few times and love it--it's green, has many birds, trees, ferns, and water, but today another woman warned me to be careful because she had heard a woman screaming "Get off me!" and had called police. There are a lot of homeless people living in the park. I don't know if I will return.

Perfect park walk. Mostly paved so great if you have to take children in strollers. Peaceful, I bet it would be gorgeous in October when the leaves start to change color.
