A Sunset and Beach Bonfire at Golden Gardens Park
Washington › Golden Gardens Park
Added by Alite Designs
- Enjoy beautiful views of the Olympics and Puget Sound
- A nice sandy beach, perfect for lounging
- Beach bonfires in Seattle? Yes please.
Golden Gardens Park is a beautiful, sandy gem that’s perfect for spending a sunny summer day lounging on the beach, exploring the shore, stand up paddling, or even playing beach volleyball. This park also features some of my favorite views in Seattle. As day turns to night, enjoy a beautiful sunset with friends and prepare to get that bonfire going!
This is a popular summer spot, and the 12 fire pits are first-come, first-served, so your best bet is getting there early in the day and posting up. Parking can also be a bit of a challenge on nice days.
Please help do you part in keeping this park clean.

Beautiful Sunset Over Olympic
Posted up about 3pm on a Thursday in July to make sure we secured a spot. There were still a handful of fire pits left at that time. Such a fun night, definitely a Seattle staple!
On those warm summer days get there early to grab a prime spot, parking can also be difficult when the park is busy so best to get there early and enjoy a BBQ while you get your fire going. Enjoy good company, food and views to take in the sunset while at Golden Gardens.
