An incredible oasis any time of year amid suburban sprawl. There are only five public accesses to Puget Sound in all of South King County for 725,000 people and this is one of three in the City of Des Moines (the others are at Saltwater State Park and Redondo). Given that much of the burden for maintaining and preserving the lower reaches of this wonderful feature falls on just the 31,000 people of Des Moines, it doesn't seem unreasonable that the 80 percent of non-resident parking lot users are asked to contribute a measly $1 per hour to help preserve the parking lot that is in danger of being closed due to seawall failure. Easily the cost of that latte you're trying to walk off anyway. Heck, it's $10 bucks at Saltwater State Park.

A workout! The south beach trail is definitely not wheelchair accessible with lots of steps. But in some places the trails are very accessible. Views are stunning. The lighthouse
/sound is a nice halfway rest. Great rewards!!

it's very pretty but lots of noise from planes. for me, it defeats the purpose of getting out into nature because I look for serenity, but for those who enjoy planes you'll love it!
