Seafair Weekend

Parking spaces at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park boat launch parking lot will be at a premium during Seafair activities on and around Lake Washington. 

City of Renton staff will be on duty at the boat launch to help direct traffic. Due to the increased number of boaters returning to the boat launch at Coulon Beach Park no launching will be allowed after 2 p.m. on the Sunday of Seafair weekend. The launch will re-open after the incoming boat traffic subsides.
