"Lincoln Park is West Seattle's major multi-purpose park - a nose-shaped bluff on Puget Sound just north of the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal. Switchbacks on the north and gentle trails to the south connect a mile of seawalls, rocky beaches to a bluff of grassy forests and meadows with play and picnic areas galore."

(Excerpt from Enjoying Seattle's Parks by Brandt Morgan)

Amazingly diverse for its size, Lincoln includes 4.6 miles of walking paths, 3.9 miles of bike trails, five picnic shelters, acres of playfields, and an outdoor heated saltwater pool and bathhouse. 

In 2016 the Seattle Park District funded the renovation of the north play area. It features 'tree house' elements, a cable ride, new play equipment, a plaza and interactive information on migratory birds found in Lincoln Park. The park also features inclusive and accessible play elements for all such as a group saucer swing, an accessible cable ride, an accessible sand table, and a small alcove for sensory sensitive children.

Launch your hand carry boat from 300' of shoreline at the south end of the park.

Current Projects

Lincoln Park South Play Area Renovation

Lincoln Park's south play area is being renovated. This improvement project is funded by the Seattle Park District. The play area renovation will update play equipment with play structures accessible to children of all ages and abilities. Additionally, accessibility improvements that meet the standards from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will be made throughout the play area. Learn more about the play area project here.

Lincoln Park Beach Comfort Station Renovation

Fall 2020 Update:
Seattle Parks and Recreation awarded the renovation contract for the comfort station, located on the beach adjacent to the picnic shelters, to JEM Contractors. Construction is underway and should be completed by the end of December 2020.

This project updates the interiors of the comfort station to meet the accessibility standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The exterior area around the comfort station will be regraded to provide accessible routes to the entrances of the building. The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy provides the funding for this project.
