Our son was married here two plus years ago. The Park is affordable and gorgeous. Stunning Vistas, space for large groups, playgrounds for children. A wonderful place just to go and relax or picnic as well.

I love walking around Lake Padden - it's beautiful, and is a good combination of flat and sloped. Can be messy in the rain/colder weather but perfect place to get in a good walk in under an hour! Lots of little nooks and crannies to...More
