The walk through the island was gorgeous. I love all the water and the lily pads were just amazing. I would go again.

Planes roar overhead; traffic rumbles on the 520 bridge; and music blares from boats. Though the Foster Island Walk pleases visually, I find it hard to ignore the noise.

An amazing little jewel of a walk for everybody. Difficult to tackle after heavy rains as the boardwalk gets very mushy, but if you go in dry weather, you will be absolutely taken with the view.
