Officially known as Tolt River-John MacDonald Park, this green space in Carnation is known more locally as Tolt-MacDonald Park. It is a true recreation destination. Located less than one hour from Seattle, the 574-acre park sits at the confluence of the Snoqualmie and Tolt rivers in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley. A 500-foot-long suspension footbridge across the Snoqualmie River connects the east and west sides of the park and offers terrific views of the Snoqualmie River and Cascade foothills. Visitors can observe spawning salmon in the river below and eagles and osprey soaring above.
For a bicycle tour of local farms and forests in the valley, head east from the park to access the 27-mile-long Snoqualmie Valley Trail. The park also features six yurts overlooking the river and year-round camping for RVs and tents, and two group campsites, all with fire pits.
WTA Pro Tip: There are also two large picnic shelters, one a beautifully restored barn, for company picnics, weddings and other special events. King County Parks has a great map of this park on their website.
