Best Park

Soundview Terrace

Soundview Terrace measures one-third of an acre, which means it's puny even by the surrounding Queen Anne neighborhood's backyard standards. But the tiny park, wedged between two slim streets, has room for a play set with slides and boasts an outstanding view of the Cascades. Even better, it's bisected by a staircase that served as my training grounds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb, making the park a potent reminder that with 400 parks and open spaces in the city, nearly every imaginable location and activity niche—no matter how narrow—is admirably filled.
