Located at the highest point in Lake Forest Park, Horizon View Park has meadows and fields for active recreation and remote areas for quiet contemplation. One paved pathway wanders through a wooded natural area. Another wraps around the reservoir of City of Seattle that is within the 8.4 acre park. The park is a great place to walk your dog, go for a jog, have a picnic, meet up with your team, take your toddler on a pretend train ride or play on the park‘s climbing structure.
Horizon View was originally a Nike missile site, It became a park and reservoir after being decommissioned in 1964. A railroad museum, once located nearby, gave the park its nickname "Choo-Cho Park." Though the museum no longer exists, the playground still has a play train.
The park is open to public, dawn to dusk. Dogs must be kept on leashes. Rules are posted at the park.
