I was wondering if anyone knows of any parks that have clear mountain views of Cascades or Olympics in the Lynnwood or Bothell area? If not, can anyone point me to the closest park to those areas with a great mountain view?? Thanks so much....

Wow, no one? Do I literally have to go Olympic National Park or Mt Rainier National Park to get a park with mountain views?? Surely there is something... I can see both Olympics and Cascades if I drive to that high ridge in Lynnwood on 196th...

I don't really know about Lynnwood or Bothell, but you can definitely see the Olympics from the Edmonds waterfront. Try Brackett's Landing or Meadowdale Beach Park.

Any of the parks you can see on any map on the water on Puget Sound will have good views of the Olympics.

I'm not sure about views of the Cascades. Lynnwood and Bothell both seem to lack the high open hills you'd need for the eastward views, nor do they have big open lakes like Lake Washington that provide them the wide expanse you see from Magnuson Park or Seward Park in Seattle.
