• Seattle's Kerry Park stands out as an urban oasis

    2013-05-06

    Regardless of how much you love a particular city, it's always good to find somewhere to get away from the hustle and bustle of its streets. Urban parks are some of the most unique destinations for tourists and city natives alike, and there are a few that have become particularly well known for offering a respite from the stress of a metropolis. This is certainly the case with Kerry Park in Seattle, Wash., which is an often overlooked gem of the Emerald City.

    At just over 1.25 acres, Kerry Park is certainly not the largest urban oasis in the country, but what it lacks in size it makes up for with some of the best views you're likely to find in the United States. The unquestioned highlight of the park is a hike to the top of Queen Anne Hill, where you'll see a breathtaking panorama of downtown Seattle, its iconic skyline and the majestic Mount Rainier in the distance.

    While there's certainly no bad time to pay a visit to Kerry Park, experts from Seattle Metropolitan recommend heading over there early in the day. Aside from being largely bereft of visitors, the park will offer a more peaceful, distinct glimpse of the city in the early morning.
