About
For one of the best views of Seattle head to Kerry Park, a small park located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill. A photo from here is Seattle postcard-perfect, featuring ferries crossing Elliott Bay, the city skyline with the Space Needle in the forefront and, if weather conditions are favorable, a view of Mt. Rainier.

Amazing view
Sep 2021
Another must do in Seattle. This is the place you see on TV whenever they show a picture of the city of Seattle. The street is very narrow and parking is at a premium but take the time to go up and see it. (Some advice if you are driving a manual transmission, get a new clutch when you are done.)

Beautiful views

The tiny park was a great place to get a beautiful view of Seattle. Even though it was cloudy during our visit, we were still able to see so much of Seattle.

Even though it was quite the flight walking up the stairs (you could ofcourse take a taxi) the view was absolutely spectacular!!!! you get a beautiful view of the downtown skyscrapers and mount rainier. the day we went the tip of the mountain was quite cloudy. making it the most beautiful and heavenly view ever!!! ahhh wish i could say more about it- but you should just try for yourself.

Sunset viewpoint
Aug 2021
Nice place to visit to see the sunset, though know that you will not be alone. We stopped by Molly Moon's a few blocks away to pick up ice cream and then walked over. The view on Mount Ranier was obstructed by the clouds when we went, but otherwise a nice view of the skyline.

Great photo opportunity

You will see tour buses arrive and there is a great reason.

This gives an incredible vantage point to take a picture of the Seattle skyline.

Free.

Definitely worth a short visit. The is some street parking. Cars and buses do come and go frequently.

Enjoy.

Not Exactly Sure Why It's Called a Park......
Jul 2021
....it's an overlook and nothing much more. But, it's quite popular, and the views are great.

We went there twice with our Seattle friends. The first time it was overcast. A couple of days later, we were "summoned" that we had to get there again. The sky was clear, and the view was great. Yes, we went and had a great view of Mt. Rainier.

No better view

This was the smallest park I had ever seen, but I doubt there are better views than from this location. If you go early morning, you have the place all to yourself except for a few neighbors walking their dogs. Go at sunset and you’ll be jockeying for position with everyone else who also thought it would be a good idea to visit at that time. Kerry Park is a must for first-time visitors!

Greatest view of Seattle
Jul 2021
On of the greatest views of Seattle skyline with the space needle in the foreground and Mt Ranier in the background (on a clear day) and it is free. Easy to get to by car or public bus.

It was a relatively tiny spot, no resting area, the view wasn’t good as thought. Maybe it was because I went there during the day. Lots of tourists, but you can find so many other spots with great views in Seattle. Would not recommend
