Fodor's Review

Before this scenic park at the foot of Lake Union was completed, most people traveled up to Wallingford's Gas Works Park to enjoy Lake Union from a green space. Now the southern shore is more accessible and vibrant than ever—this 12-acre park includes a model boat pond, a boardwalk, a beach where you can launch small craft like kayaks and rowboats to paddle past the houseboats, a spray area for little kids, plus the Museum of History & Industry and the Center for Wooden Boats. Several cruise options also depart from the park. Take the Mini-Ferry across Lake Union to UW or vice versa ($5 each way), or take a 45-minute narrated Ice Cream Cruise (Sundays, on the hour from 11 to 5, $11).
