Located in the far northeast corner of Lake Washington, Saint Edwards State Park is a former Roman Catholic educational facility that was moved into state parks ownership to preserve this place as one of the last remaining undeveloped places along Lake Washington.

While not in Seattle proper, the pak is reasonably close to Seattle, and would make a good partial day trip.

As the park has its own entry as a location in the VirtualTourist database, I have put most of my photos and several tips there. However, as it is also a valid recreational destination close enough to Seattle, I have put this tip in Seattle to act as a pointer to the location.

My VirtualTourist Page about this park is located at:

The park contains a number of trails, some of which allow mountain biking. There is also a very popular playground, open space around the historic buildings that are an extensive picnic area, and some sports facilities.

The web site below is the official Washington State Parks Web Page for the park.
