Priest Point Park (PPP) has everything to offer. Water front tide to wade in, rocks to skip over the water, much fora and fauna to appreciate. Pack a picnic basket and enj a sunny day!

the park has multiple experiences -- big old growth trees, a rose garden, walks along the Sound and trails down to the water -- oh, and play areas.

This is always a nice place to go, just five minutes from downtown. A very nice park, with great waterfront views, amongst the beautiful fir trees.
