This is a grand park to visit for being new to Seattle, a tourist or even if you have lived here all your life. There's a great view of downtown across the water. There are two picnic shelters that you can reserve in advance with the City of Seattle for your private event that come with BBQ grills and covered picnic tables as well as outdoor ones. This park is awesome for watching the boats on Lake Union, flying a kite, having a picnic, or watching the fireworks on Independence Day. They have volleyball courts and there is also a big, indoor playground for the kids. Parking is ample. Getting there is not intuitive so plan ahead or use GPS.
One of the great parks in Seattle to capture amazing photos of downtown! A little too far to be captured with a smart phone camera but definitely worth it if you have a lens with a good zoom. Beautiful green grass and plenty of dogs out for their daily walks - bliss
I arrived at the crack of dawn on late October Saturday and was surprised to see so few people. It was Sunny but rapidly turned into fog you could see creeping over Lake Union. I have to say it was probably my best visit ever because of the unusual desolation. Thanks for the treat Seattle! What a beautiful morning walk. Timing is everything.
The park was a great surprise! Is plenty of no longer used gas equipment that's been painted and colorful hues which make it an interesting part of the park landscape. There are areas for kids to play and the view from the tall hill is fantastic! You can also walk closer to the water and I would recommend going near sunset for some great colors behind the Seattle skyline.
Man oh man, I can be here for all day long and just look at the town across. So peaceful and cheerful. The gas tubes at the end of the park make the setting almost surreal. You can see people doing yoga at one corner of the park , kids cycling , etc. will love to visit again.
