Carkeek Park – Love spending some time with the family and kids here!

This family-friendly park is full of trails for all ages! There is one level that is a field with playground equipment for children. There's even a big salmon-shaped slide! There are some lovely, pretty short hiking trails above the children's area. On the lower section you can walk along the river and watch the salmon. You can also take the stairs, close to the playground, and walk over the train tracks and down to the beach. The trains are loud and go by fairly often, but people seem to enjoy watching them and walking over the bridge as they go by underneath. It has everything from a sandy beach to excellent picnic facilities, a huge lawn for games and relaxation, and forest walks that make me feel, even for just a little while, like I am really in the forest, far from the bustle of the city. The views and scenery make this park worth the journey.
