Take in the View at Kerry Park


Added by Lisa Zook

Kerry Park provides panoramic views of the Seattle city skyline, Space Needle, Elliott Bay, the Olympics, and Mt. Rainier. There's no better place in Seattle to take in the city sights. It's also the perfect location to snap that iconic Seattle photo!

Located at the top of Queen Anne Hill, Kerry Park is a favorite destination for photography. On any given day you'll find tourists and locals relaxing in the park and enjoying the beautiful view.

The park is located in the Queen Anne neighborhood so there is free parking along the streets. If you're heading to the park on a clear and sunny day, or especially for sunset, parking may be tough. I suggest driving a bit further north in to the neighborhood (near 5th Ave W & W Lee St) to find parking. Plus, if you park a few blocks north of the park, you have no excuse not to grab some ice cream at the local's favorite Molly Moon's Ice Cream on Galer Street.

After snapping a few photos of the park (sunset provides beautiful colors!), consider walking to the nearby restaurants and shops of Upper Queen Anne. From the park, walk northeast until you come to the intersection of W Galer St & Queen Anne Ave N. Follow Queen Anne Avenue north to find boutique shopping and delicious food! A few local favorites:

Beautiful Vantage Point of Seattle Skyline

I visited Kerry Park while killing time on a visit to Seattle. I just grabbed a coffee and went. It's worth getting out of the city for a bit- even if only for the photo op. The Seattle skyline is iconic, let's be honest!

So worth your time!

One of the best skylines in my opinion! So beautiful. Yea, it's crowded, but not so bad you can't find parking and you butt elbows with people. Like most things, go during the week! Great sunset spot! Enjoy!

Grade "A" views!

Great, possibly best park in the city for views of downtown

Killer Chill Time

The View Is Righteous, Day Or Night. Street Parking On Small Residential Streets, Be Cautious When Driving There. Just chill and take in the view!

Iconic Seattle Skyline Views

Growing up in the Seattle area this was one of the popular spots we would take our visitors from out of state. Great place to watch the sunset and walking distance to many popular bars. My wife and I actually tied the knot here legally before our formal wedding ceremony in Mexico. Good memories here!
