Seattle, Washington

Take in the View at Kerry Park

Originally 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:

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!

Iconic View

Love this spot! Came at golden hour one of my first nights here and was not disappointed! Parking is a little hard to come by right by the park but there is a lot more on 3rd and 4th

Golden Hour

Arrived to Kerry park around golden hour and got some amazing shots of the skyline with some incredible color. Around late May so it was a warm night with no clouds. Highly recommend for a summer night
