Owner description: For one of the best views of Seattle head to Kerry Park, a small park located on the south side of Queen Anne Hill.  A photo from here is Seattle postcard-perfect, featuring ferries crossing Elliott Bay, the city skyline with the Space Needle in the forefront and, if weather conditions are favorable, a view of Mt. Rainier.

“Very Photogenic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

I checked Tripadvisor for attactions in Seattle before I left and Kerry Park was listed. I am glad it was. We went there when it was raining pretty good (big surprise). But it was worth it anyway.

“Must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

It's the only place in Seattle where the Space Needle looks taller than all the other buildings and is right in the center of the skyline. Take a cab up there (steep hill up to it); it'll only cost about $7 from downtown. Definitely hit this up for some great photo ops!

“a view like none other”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

it is worth taking the drive up to Kerry Park for the view. I kept thinking we have been to Seattle a number of times and have seen views of the city, done the space needle- what could be so great about the view from this park.? Well we were put to shame for not going all those other times. We took some pics then walked down the side ramp/stairs to the park. There are play equipment and then a small field. The kids had a great time and the view is a different perspective then you get anywhere else in the area. Dont be like us a pass this by on your next trip to Seattle!

“Perfect city scape view of Seattle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

From Kerry Park, you can see the entire city scape of Seattle. It's the perfect bird's eye view of Puget Sound and downtown. If you're lucky to visit on a Sunny day, then Mount Ranier is also beautifully in view in the background of Seattle.

This is the quintessential Seattle view you see on postcards. Great for photos of the skyline.
