We rented a canoe at Enatai beach and paddled into Merced Slough. It was a peaceful, easy canoe ride with my kids. We saw frogs, turtles, blue herons, ducks and jumping fish. It was just long enough that we didn't get too tired of paddling....More

Mercer Slough is a quick drive from downtown Bellevue. The park is well maintained with easy paths to wander on. Great photos opportunities along the way. Can't wait to return on a warm summers day.
