At the north end of Lake Sammamish sits Redmond's quirky Marymoor Park, King County's most popular public park. It is easy to see why residents from Redmond and the surrounding areas flock to Marymoor. This 640-acre park has several unusual features, including a rock climbing wall, a dog wash, a velodrome for indoor cycling events, and a cricket green. Marymoor Park even has a designated area for radio-controlled model airplane enthusiasts to fly. While its unusual amenities make a day at this park a thrill, it also features standard park fare like picnic grounds and walking paths.
