Magnolia Park is a small family friendly park that is situated on the Magnolia Bluff. The park opens great views on Puget Sound and many wonderful and beautiful Madrona trees. The park and the neighborhood were not correctly named by a Navy geographer. He wrongly identified Madrona trees as magnolias.

The park was bought by the city in 1950.

The views are probably the best features of the park. It should be said that the best time to visit the park is fall when the trees change their color. Winter is a great time to enjoy the views on Puget Sound. And of course, Magnolia Park shines in spring and summer.

The 12-acre park has wonderful barbecue grills and picnic tables which can be used anytime. This park is not as crowded as other nearby parks in this region.

Magnolia Park also features play area (ADA compliant) and an outdoor tennis court.

Because this park is no so crowded visitors can enjoy quietness and peace, it’s a great place to watch the sunset here while having a picnic.

Magnolia Park has several benches that are situated in the places where visitors can sit and watch the boats and ships throughout Puget Sound and Elliott Bay. This peaceful park gives you the opportunity to sit, relax and to listen to the waves of the waters.

It should be also mentioned that this park is situated in a short walk from the Magnolia Village.
