Sold by the Catholic Diocese of Seattle to the State of Washington in 1977 for $7 million and opened to the public in 1978, the Saint Edward State Park boasts the longest undeveloped stretch of Lake Washington beach still remaining. The seven miles of beautiful trails all wind down to views of Mount Rainier at the water's edge. The park's old seminary building includes a kitchen, dining hall, classrooms, dormitory rooms, laundry and chapel. Other facilities are a gymnasium with a stage, a 25-yard indoor heated swimming pool, two tennis courts, six handball courts, an athletic field, picnic areas, parking and a one-mile horse trail. It opens daily from 8a.
