Type: Public Park
Address: 800 89th Ave SE, Bellevue (watch for signs)

Even though this park has 'beach' in its name, it doesn't have its own beach but shares with Chiseler's Beach via paved paths. Chism Beach Park has its own parking area, plus picnic areas, and landscaped grounds. It also contains a cabin built by Albert Burrows in the early 1880s. Read about this in the Seattle Times or on the Bellevue Parks website. We swam north from here toward Meydenbauer Bay and saw a home with its own funicular car down to the water and, nearby, a float plane up on a rack out of the water. It's another world.
