A big toy playground is popular with kids. The playground was built by the community for the community and completely funded by donations from the community.
Picnicking, hiking, soccer, mountain biking, fishing, bicycling, swimming, bird watching, softball and horse trails also are in the Holmes Point area.
Access to waterfront from the shore is by trail only. There is no vehicle access to the beach, which is undeveloped and unguarded.
There are many trails open to mountain bike and is a very popular activity within Saint Edward State Park. Remember several of the trails are open to hiking only and bikes are strictly prohibited on these trails. Check with the park office or kiosk for trail maps and information.
A recreational license is required for fishing and shellfish harvesting at Washington state parks. For regulations, fishing season information or to purchase a recreational license, visit the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife website.

Picnic and Day-use Facilities
Saint Edward State Park is extremely popular for special events, weddings and family picnics. To ensure your family/group can have your event/picnic on the date you select, reservations are strongly recommended. Regardless of the size of your group, a Special Activity Recreation Permit may be required pursuant to WAC 352-32-047. To make a reservation or to obtain a Special Activity Recreation Permit for your event, please call the park manager at (425) 823-2992. Even though the park offers first come, first served picnic tables, if the park has reached its capacity level with reservations, first come, first served tables will not be available. Also, because of limited parking and to help save resources, visitors are strongly encouraged to car/vanpool.
The park offers five unsheltered picnic areas for rental to groups. Each site accommodates at least 150 people with picnic tables and stand-up style grills. The east and west picnic sites have a ball field with their areas. The north picnic area has an open play field and horseshoe pits. The south picnic site has a beach-style volleyball area with a net and is very close to the playground. There are 20' x 20' and 10' X 20' canopies, tables, chairs and portable heater rentals available for outdoor picnics. Extra parking may be set up for events in advance, call the park manager for details at (425) 823-2992.
