    It has a great view of Seattle with Lake Union in the foreground. There is also an old gas mill. It is a great place for pictures. There is also a playground.

    Grab some food and enjoy the amazing view! If you can go on weekdays, way less people. Picnic areas and the grills are another great option to spend the day.

    On Tuesday evenings in summer, you can watch the Duck Dodge sailing regatta, a Seattle tradition that goes back nearly 40 years. With or without the regatta, the skyline at dusk looks great. Read more
