"One of the best Puget Sound Parks"

This neighborhood is a residential area. It has some nice houses and apartments. The ones by the water are much bigger as usual. We considered living here but it was too far to Seattle.

We come to this neighborhood because we love the Richmond Beach Saltwater Park.

In the park there are some walking trails, and an exercise station with stairs and equipment. Plus a childrens playground close to the parking lot. If you take the trails down you will cross a bridge over the railroad tracks and arrive at the beach. We love the beautiful statue near the beach. It is 2 Native Americans holding a paddle, because the Native Americans would use canoes in the Puget Sound for transportation and for fishing. There are also some picnic tables in a beautiful structure.

But the best part is to play on the beach with our daughter. Some people have built a fort out of driftwood. Our daughter loves to go in the fort and to put more wood on it. It is a very large beach, with some sand and some rocks. You can walk a long time along the beach. If you bring water shoes you can wade in the water. The whole park has a beautiful view of the Puget Sound. Across the Puget Sound you can see the Olympic Mountains. Right now they have snow and are extra beautiful.

Sometimes we will get takeout from the Flying Dragon to take to the park. It is very close to the park on Richmond Beach Road. The food is pretty good, with large portions. It is not as authentic as other places, but still has good flavor.
