Clyde Beach Park

Clyde Beach Park is a secluded park on Lake Washington, just minutes from downtown Bellevue.  

This small park has a sloped, grassed area that extends all the way to the waterfront, with picnic tables, a playground and a vintage boathouse. It’s significantly quieter than many other waterfront parks.

Launch your paddleboard or kayak from the non-motorized boat launch at Clyde Beach Park.
