Kerry Park (Franklin Place) Tours

star-5
3 Reviews
Kerry Park (Franklin Place)
For views of downtown Seattle, the Space Needle, and Mount Rainier, the hilltop Kerry Park (Franklin Place) is hard to beat. Popular with photographers, Kerry Park looks out across the city skyline, the leafy streets of the Queen Anne Hill neighborhood, and Puget Sound, where you can spot ferries leaving the Seattle waterfront for the San Juan Islands.
 
The Basics
The view from Kerry Park is among Seattle’s most photographed scenes, and with good reason: It takes in beloved landmarks from the Space Needle to Bainbridge Island to Mount Rainier. Although the park itself is compact, it’s a worthwhile detour if you’re exploring Queen Anne Hill. Kerry Park is also included in some city sightseeing tours, including a half-day excursion that visits Snoqualmie Falls and major Seattle sights.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The most popular vantage point for photography is to the park’s right as you’re looking at downtown Seattle.
  • Many photographers prefer a zoom or telephoto lens when taking pictures from Kerry Park.
  • Bring a tripod to capture sunset shots.
 
How to Get There
Located in the Queen Anne Hill neighborhood, Kerry Park has three entrances on W. Highland Drive between 3rd Avenue W. and 2nd Avenue W. Street parking is available in the surrounding area. Several bus routes stop a short distance away at the intersection of Queen Anne Avenue N. and Highland Drive.
 
When to Get There

The most sought-after views from Kerry Park are of downtown Seattle with Mount Rainier as a backdrop, but the scene only appears on clear days. Sunset is a popular time to visit, as well, so it’s worth arriving early to secure a good spot among the other photographers. At night, it’s an entirely different experience; come after dark to spot ferry lights on Puget Sound and the glittering Seattle skyline.
 
What Can You See from Kerry Park?

Even if it’s your first time in Seattle, you’re likely to recognize the Space Needle and Mount Rainier, both of which can be spotted from Kerry Park. If you’re scanning the skyline, however, there are more landmarks to be seen. Look for the Seattle Great Wheel on the waterfront; sunlight glinting from the Third Avenue Building; and the Columbia Center, the tallest building downtown.
