It’s an Edmonds Kind of Day

There’s a common phrase throughout this sought after neighborhood of Edmonds just 20 min. north of Seattle and a popular destination for many Northwesterners. It’s an Edmonds Kind of Day just smacks of beautiful views found from the downtown proper overlooking the Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains and a host of activity on the water especially during the spring and summer.

One of my favorite places to go is the Marina Park also adjacent to the off-leash dog park with wide open spaces for summer picnics, family activities, volleyball, playing in the sand or just sitting on the logs and viewing the busy waterfront.

Take a look at this Link to Edmonds Parks.
