Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park consists of 57 acres of land and water along the southeastern shore of Lake Washington. The park offers a unique opportunity for both land-based and water-related recreational activities.

From an eight-lane boat launch to an almost 1.5 mile walking/jogging trail; from sports to playground equipment; Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park is that rare park that offers something for almost everyone.

Enjoy Clam Lights, kids fishing derbies, annual 4th of July festivities, and the Kidd Valley Summer Concert Series.

The swimming beach opens for the season on June 23, 2018. Lifeguards will be on duty daily from 12 to 8 p.m. through Labor Day.

It is your responsibility to obey all posted signs.

Park Upgrade Project

Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park will undergo facility upgrades starting in the 2018-2019 offseason.

Paver Repair Project

Coulon Park Pavers

In 2015, the plaza concrete pavers outside of Kidd Valley restaurant and the North Pavilion at Coulon Park, constructed in 1982, were determined to be no longer functional. The city replaced them with poured-in-place concrete which are fully accessible, provide safe circulation, and will last for at least 50 years.
