New park alert: Meydenbauer Bay Park in Bellevue

Beautiful bay views and seasonal water sports will make this a popular Eastside park

Just in time for spring sunshine! Bellevue has a brandnew park to explore. MeydenbauerBay Park and Marina stretches10 acres along the Lake Washington shoreline andhas a huge pedestrian pier that lets you walk out overthe bay.

There's also a boat landing, a swimming beach and seasonal water sport rentals. The kids will beeline forthe nature-inspired playground, which sits atop a terrace with beautiful views. This park looks fun for both kids and parents and will bea popular spot (I predict)when the weather is warm.

The park's address is41998thAve NE, Bellevue, WA
