Carkeek Park and Beach Professional Review and Guide

"Occupying a stretch of Puget Sound shoreline in northwestern Seattle, Carkeek Park presents a mix of well-developed fields and play areas, an extensive network of trails, and a wide expanse of rocky beach to explore. High bluffs above the water allow all comers to enjoy views usually reserved for the residents of the upscale Blue Ridge neighborhood where the park is nestled.

People come here for good reason: The park has a variety of attractions, and despite the crowds, plenty of peace and solitude can be found on the trails by anyone willing to put forth a little effort."
