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:

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
