Lakeview Park is a 4.5 acre (18,000 m²) park in the Denny-Blaine neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, designed as part of the Olmsted Brothers park system in Seattle.[1] It is located on both sides of Lake Washington Boulevard E. as it winds down a hillside toward Lake Washington. The western half is a bowl-like park with grass and trees along Dorffel Drive E. and E. Harrison Street; the eastern half incorporates a lookout at the end of E. Harrison Street and undeveloped hillside between Hillside Drive E. and McGilvra Boulevard E.

The upper campus of The Bush School is located across E. Harrison Street and Hillside Drive E. from the park.

This Seattle Park is also known to many as Mud Park because in the rain it becomes somewhat of a mud pit.
