Carkeek Park is an amazing public park in Northwest Seattle which is literally behind my sister and brother-in-law’s house. It’s gorgeous, it backs up to the Puget Sound and has a ton of trails, parks and gorgeous views to enjoy. There are also parks, paths and a great beach that are all kid friendly! This is one of my favorite activities during any visit to Seattle. Also as a tourist you’ll be amongst the locals so keep well-kept secret between us. 950 Northwest Carkeek, Park Road. Seattle, WA. 98177.
