We've compiled a West Seattle Mac Kid Approved List of our FAVORITE Parks and Trails as well as a some favorites from our sister sites all around Washington!

Here are OUR West Seattle + Burien + White Center + Tukwila + Georgetown TOP 5 MUST VISIT parks and beaches:


  1. Lincoln Park - perfect for all ages with hikes, beaches, paved bike paths, ball fields, covered and reserve-able picnic locations.
    The Coleman Pool is also a great draw in the summer - and it's saltwater!  Lincoln is right by the West Seattle Ferry if you want to go explore Vashon and make it a full day!
  2. Alki Beach - we all know this dreamy spot with sandy beach, picnic tables, paved paths, and wonderful beachfront restaurants and shops!  Alki also has bike and boat rentals as well as the best views of Downtown Seattle no matter the weather!
  3. Seahurst Beach - located in Burien, Seahurst Beach is a great spot with covered picnic areas, 2 playgrounds, beach front and rivers to explore + wonderful hikes.
  4. Green River Trail - This one is for families who love biking, this trail follows the Green River from Starfire Sports all the way to Kent.
  5. Lakewood Park - Tucked in White Center, this park has a fantastic disc golf course, paved paths for bike riding and a pond full of ducks as well as covered picnic areas.
