“Stop by the farm and pick your own blueberries”

This is a wetland, dry enough for nature trails due to the nine-foot lowering of Lake Washington’s water level in 1917, so the best way to see it is on the water. Launch your canoe or kayak at the Sweyolocken boat launch off Bellevue Way and paddle the 2.6-mile water trail through the slough. You’ll encounter great blue herons and dozens of other species of water birds along the placid channel, and annoy the workers staring enviously where the waterway weaves among Bellevue office parks at the north end.

Mercer Slough Nature Park is located a few minutes away from downtown Bellevue. It spans 320 acres, and features a wildlife habitat, agricultural land, forests, and freshwater wetlands. Super fun for the whole family! We think it's one of the best things to do in Bellevue.

Nice little hideaway in the middle of the city. Rent a canoe or kayak from Enatai beach and row over tot he quiet waterway in the Slough. We saw turtles, herons, ducks, toads and fish jumping. This was a peaceful canoe ride for my family. It was about a 2 hour event from renting the canoe, rowing and getting back on our way.
