Perched on a slope atop Queen Anne Hill is Kerry Park and one of the best views in Seattle. Not only can you see the buildings of downtown, but also Bainbridge Island, the iconic Space Needle, and the boats crossing Elliott Bay. On a clear day, it is even possible to see the summit of Mount Rainier in the background.
The park is a peaceful open space to soak up the views, and is popular with photographers. It’s particularly beautiful at sunrise and sunset, or just after dusk when the city lights have emerged. Many of the photographs you see of the Seattle skyline are taken at this park. There’s a steel sculpture titled “Changing Form” in the center of the park that’s also worth seeing.
Visit the park on a multi-hour tour of Seattle to hit all the highlights of the city, including the Space Needle and Pike Place Market.
You’ll find Kerry Park at the corner of 2nd Avenue W. and W. Highland Drive. Free street parking is typically available. Opening hours are from 6am to 10pm daily.
