The northerly neighbor to Houghton Beach Park, Marsh Park is a calmer version that is located just 0.3 miles to the north in Kirkland. Occupying just over 4 acres on Lake Washington's eastern shore, Marsh Park is a relaxed park with several acres of lawn that is ideal for sunbathing or just watching boats pass by, a pier that is perfect for launching small watercrafts, a well-shaded picnic area, and restroom facilities. From the park's shore you'll also enjoy views of the Seattle skyline and the Olympic Mountains to the far west, with The Brothers (6,842') dominating the horizon.

Note: Unlike Houghton Beach Park, Marsh Park doesn't have a beach.
