    Aside from Alki, this is one of the all time best lookout points to see Seattle's skyline.Great place which includes downtown, Space Needle, ocean, and Mount Rainier. It was breath-taking.

    Not crowded usually and has the best view in town (of the town)! Although it's better to visit when it's not rainy (not so often - it's Seattle after all)

    The place to get that classic Space Needle shot is Kerry Park on the southern slope of Queen Anne Hill. It covers barely an acre, but it gives you the panorama of Elliott Bay, downtown & the needle. Read more

    Stand on the bench closest to the city to get over the trees. This is the postcard shot of Seattle with the Needle in front of the city. For more of a fun shot frame the Space Needle in the sculpture.

    Best sunset in Seattle. When facing the skyline, the corner to the far right of the park is the best to set up your tripod.

    Really and truly the best view of Seattle. Definitely a hike from Belltown/Downtown/any neighborhood near the water but worth it. Better than the view from the space needle!

    You can't get a better, closer view of the Needle than at Kerry park. Yes, touristy. But still an awesome view especially when the mountain is out!

    If coming from Lower Queen Anne, stop for a glass of wine before or after at the Sitting Room and take the more romantic stairs nearby versus straight up Queen Anne street.

    It's quite a hike to get to on foot from downtown but worth it for the best views of the skyline. Not much open space though.

    A gorgeous view of downtown Seattle, the Space Needle & the water! This is definitely a place to start snapping away! Wowza! Zing! Plus a great historical neighborhood to explore too!

    Awesome view of Seattle and Mt. Rainier on a clear day. Grab some Molly moon's ice cream a few blocks over and enjoy your snack with a view!

    During the summer, bring your out-of-town friends here and snap your very Seattle looking pictures. Look up at the clouds, too!

    Snap snap! Drive up Queen Anne hill and you'll find a beautiful park that boasts the most gorgeous views of Seattle!

    Fantastic view of Seattle & the space needle - take a no 1 or 29 bus to get to Kerry Park from downtown. Helps you up that hill for USD2.50...

    The quintessential view of Seattle with the Space Needle, downtown, and Rainier all within the same field of view. Come here on a clear day.

    Absolutely beautiful! A great place to see the city from a different angle, have coffee and read a book. I would imagine very romantic at night.

    Amazing. Go a bit before sunset when the sky is changing rapidly. Bring a lover to smooch or a beer to sip (sneakily).

    You know that quintessential skyline view you think of when you think "Seattle"? This is it. Go. Climb the hills to get there. Worth it.

    Awesome panorama view of the Seattle skyline. Especially beautiful during sunrise & sunset, but also at night when everything is aglow.

    Classic views of the Space Needle with Rainier in the background! Amazing at sunset. Watch out - the park is tiny!

    Go here both by day and by night if you get the chance. Skyline looks awesome when the lights come on as well as by day.

    Probably one of the most iconic views of the city. Photos are great, but seeing it in person is even better, especially during sunset.

    I like it better at night. A lot less people and you sorta feel as though you're on top of the world. Great place for thinking...

    the view is excellent and there is also a playground at the bottom of the hill, with a climbing wall and a red slide.

    A great place to take your family and friends who are new to Seattle. Go during a sunset and be amazed.

    While you're here, don't forget to check out (and check-in at) the nearby Marshall Park for an equally spectacular view. It's at the corner of W Highland Dr and 7th Ave W!

    Best view of downtown Seattle. A big of a walk so be prepared but, well worth the hike.

    Make your way up Queen Anne to Kerry Park where you can get an amazing, postcard view of the city. Don't forget to bring your camera!
  • Brian I.
    It's a lot smaller than it seems on tv but still so worth the view even with the clear lack of parking

    Plan to spend 30 minutes. Great views but its tiny and its a view point more than a park.
