I have been here hundreds of times. As a child and as an adult. Now with children of my own. Laid back and quiet for the relaxing picknick or a short nature hike. 5 star for ease of access, relaxation, and entertainment for the kids.

This park has something for everyone. A playground for small children, areas to BBQ and have gatherings at, picnic tables, and trails to hike. You can hike all the way to the water. Our family had a great time here!

What can be said? It's the Pacific Northwest, so it's beautiful! Priest Point Park is a lovely little get away for a nice, quiet walk, a lunch, or just an opportunity to unwind.

My wife and I used to go here with our kids and later our grandkids. We've been to several weddings here and several birthday parties. The park is usually very well maintained and though very accessible and close to town it still can have that...More
