"Great events at Marymoor Park"
Marymoor Park hosts some terrific events, such as the Jazz Festival and Cirque du Soleil, plus provides quite a few sports fields for baseball and soccer. The park is quite large and has several private areas for picnicing or family get-togethers. There is a rock climbing wall set up for the adventurous and play areas for the kids, as well as covered pavilions for sheltered gatherings. The park sits at the north end of Lake Washington, though there are no roads or parking close to the lake, so it's quite a hike to get there. The park is pretty conveniently located for west-siders to visit, just off of Hwy 520, though traffic in and out of the park during events can be a bit of a nightmare. There are, of course, many large trees and foliage, but quite a few open areas for playing and enjoying the sunshine (when we get it). Just outside the park, the city of Redmond offers some of the greenest neighborhoods in the city with some terrific restaurants and shops.
