Long, thin park on the shore of Lake Washington nestled between two high rise apartment buildings. There is no beach access but a small embankment to the south could allow water access; we approached from the water side by swimming from Madison Park (to the south). The bulk of the water edge is a rip rap bulkhead several feet high. On our visit there were blackberry bushes overhanging the rocks and reaching almost to the water. Two of my companions availed themselves of the opportunity and ate berries while standing in the water!
