Lake Meridian Park in Kent East Hill is a recreation paradise and the place to go for all things water. The scenic spot boasts jaw-dropping views of Mount Rainier, and features a boat launch, swimming and fishing, and is one of the few lakes in the region that allows motorized boating. Cast a line, launch a kayak, power up the jet ski, or just stroll the shore. Watch dragon boat racers practice their craft, or join in the fun. Kids will love the interactive playground and sandy beach. Lake Meridian also hosts summer concerts in the park and the Fourth of July Splash, one of the biggest Independence Day celebrations in the region complete.
