An unsurpassed view of Elliott Bay and the Central City, with an occasional backdrop of Mount Rainier, draws camera buffs to this spot. At sunset they often line the wall just as the city and the sound are beginning to glow with lights. At night it becomes almost a fantasy scene, with brightly lit ferries gliding across the water and the Space Needle shining from its 500-foot pedestal.
- Excerpt from Enjoying Seattle's Parks by Brandt Morgan

Acreage: 1.26


As the plaque on a wall at Kerry Viewpoint tells us: "Kerry Park given to the City in 1927 by Mr. and Mrs. Albert Sperry Kerry, Sr., so that all who stop here may enjoy this view."

The sculpture "Changing Form" by Doris Chase was added in 1971, a gift from Kerry's three children.
