Kerry Park

Halfway up Queen Anne Hill is everyone’s favorite view of Seattle. A plaque at the park notes “Kerry Park given to the city in 1927 by Mr. and Mrs. Albert Sperry Kerry, Sr., so that all who stop here may enjoy this view.” The park overlooks the Space Needle, downtown, Elliott Bay and Mt. Rainier. On a clear day, it’s a Seattle icon-packed photo opportunity.
