The park is in a curious but strategic location, in the middle of Union and First Hill and Spring Street. This is strategic because it offers pedestrian traffic from all these areas to find a relaxing green at lunchtime and socialise. 5.2 acres in area, the park is also unusual for the way it mixes its green ambience with Brutalist architecture. The most significant brutalist piece of work is the Naramore Fountain by sculptor George Tsutakawa. It is surprisingly beautiful.

  • So it's a park in Seattle. If you're from Seattle you probably know what I'm talking about. This one has some interesting concrete structures. It is a very beautiful Park. However concrete artwork tends to provide a lot of privacy for people who spend a lot of time in the park. Consequently you won't get through the park without seeing at least 20 or 30 needles. But hey if you stay away from the needles you can still enjoy the scenery and the exercise Hep free.

  • I could see this being a nice park but I wouldn’t advise visiting at night. The park has become overrun with homeless camping in many areas of the park. Still a fun place to walk through during the day.

  • Grew up around here, used to be a nice walk from first hill to convention center. I know the parks department is doing their best and the state of the city isn't their fault. But steer clear of you can

  • The park meant to defeat a barrier became a barrier itself, how ironic. When the weather is nice, sketchy people absent, and refuse gone, the nooks and crannies can actually seem inviting as designed to be small recluses from city life, especially the stairs down the tall waterfall. Definitely a parkour landmark. Avoid at dark. Generally stay in well traveled sections.

  • The park is nice, although it is completely overshadowed by street people doing drugs on the benches. We even had one of the druggies yell at us "What are you looking at?" as we were simply checking out the park. It was quite uncomfortable. I wouldn't recommend anyone walk through by themselves. There are so many other parks to check out.
