Beautiful easy paved trail. Family friendly and beautiful water views. Clean all the way through. I can’t wait to throw on my runners and come back to run here. Multiple families out and about masked and unmasked enjoying this beautiful Saturday.

Seward Park is absolutely beautiful. The loop was so nice. There was a decent number of people where u wouldnt feel crowded but still felt a sense of community.

Parking lot closed, so you have to park on the street. Very busy park. All flat around the perimeter, but there are some cross trails across the park that have minimal elevation gain. Good one for a short hike that doesn't take long. Lots of wildlife.

Awesome! Stroll great views of lake Washington and also spotted various wildlife like turtles ducks herons Hiked on 5/31

Bello lugar. Sector para correr, hacer un picnic, bañarse en verano y caminar entre los árboles. Muy buen lugar para un día muy tranquilo. Llegas en transporte público (50) eso fue lo mejor.

This is one of my favorite place in the city. The view of Lake Washington is great, the water is clear, and walking under tree shade is cool.

Great little walk in the middle of the city. Plan to stop at lot to look at all the sites. I saw turtles and eagles and baby ducks, and the view over the water is amazing.

For those in Seattle, Seward park is a lifeline to nature. This park though popular always has trails and beaches easily navigated to where you can find isolation and privacy. Lots of trails winding through the woods makes one feel removed from the city so close by. Monks go here to meditate and the cove makes for warmer water for swimmers. Snorkeling is pretty good if you like to hit up lily pads. Car break ins are huge here and they attack right under your eyes, so hide anything that looks valuable before you arrive there.
