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.

Getting too close to the space needle for a pic gets you proportions all out of whack. So what you are really looking for is Kerry Park where it is an absolutely gorgeous back drop for that perfect couples pic. You will love it. It is exactly what you are looking for. Free parking and an all around grea spot

Kerry Park is a small famous park in a neighborhood just south of downtown Seattle. The view is nothing short of spectacular, especially if the weather is nice (it was for us). You can see Mt. Ranier in the distance, and many, many (many!) people go there at dusk to take photos of the city lights coming on as darkness approaches. Many recognize the view from 'Frasier" or "The Amazing Race," but if you don't recognize it from those shows, GO ANYWAY! It's certainly a spot visitors should make a point to look from! It is streetside neighborhood parking, so please be respectful of the folks who live there. You might have to park a few blocks away and walk.

Absolutely spectacular views. An amazing place to sit and look over the most beautiful city ever. On clear day you can literally see forever. Bring a jacket and wear good walking shoes, you may need to park and walk to the park.

This is definitely worth the walk; uphill. The views over the city are great. Many people stopped on tour buses, but we walked up from the city. It’s worth the effort, and it’s downhill back!! I would recommend spending some time here to soak in the view

This is an amazing VIEW! A must see. This was only a few blocks from us (all up hill), but we'll worth it.
