Fodor's Review

It's not just famous for its Marymoor Velodrome, the Pacific Northwest's sole cycling arena. This 640-acre park also has a 45-foot-high climbing rock, game fields, tennis courts, a model airplane launching area, a huge off-leash dog park, and the Pea Patch community garden. You can row on Lake Sammamish, rent a free bike via the Blue Bike program or head straight to the picnic grounds or to the Willowmoor Farm, an estate inside the park.

Marymoor has some of the

best bird-watching in this largely urban area. It's possible to spot some 24 resident species, including great blue herons, belted kingfishers, buffleheads, short-eared and barn owls, and red-tailed hawks. Occasionally, bald eagles soar past the lakefront. The Sammamish River, which flows through the western section of the park, is an important salmon spawning stream.

Ambitious bikers can follow the Burke-Gilman Sammamish River Trail to access the park; Marymoor is just over 20 miles from Seattle and it's a flat ride most of the way.
