An approximately 21-acre oasis of green in the heart of Bellevue defines this elegant centerpiece of the Bellevue parks system. A one-half mile promenade, bordered by a double row of shade trees and a stepped canal, brings you to the 240-foot wide waterfall that cascades into a reflecting pond. A ten-acre lawn area invites you to pause for a picnic with Bellevue’s skyline and Mount Rainier in the background. The park’s delightful play area and formal gardens add to family enjoyment and serve as a backdrop for community events.
Memorial Benches: Currently, we are not accepting applications for memorial/donation benches at the Downtown Park. If you are interested in donating a bench at another City of Bellevue park, please contact Parks & Community Services at 425-452-6855 for more details.
