    There is a nice playground for kids, a picnic area, the beach, and Alaskan Way Railroad - children love to watch trains crossing by. Also there are many frains for hiking and riding a bisycle.

    Don't forget to hike up to the viewpoint on the southwest side of the park for an amazing view of the sound. There are also caves that are said to be in a secret area of the park.

    Carkeek Park has a combination of a beach, and a series of densely vegetated ravines. If you've never been, I highly recommend it. Read more

    Favorite run: beginning near the entrance off 100th Pl, along the canal all the way to the sound, then up the bluff, and back

    Did you know? The Coho and Chum salmon that return to this park to spawn every fall are anadromous species, meaning that they have adapted to live in both fresh and salt water. Read more

    Lots of nice trails at this park. The beach is not as nice as Golden Gardens, but the overlook is much better. Read more

    Love this park, it's my new hiking spot. The trails are great, the views are amazing, there's a beach and a train that passes by every once in a while.
