Gas Works Park Reviews & Ratings
This park is so unique and historical and just awesome! It's hard not to like it, you get great views of Lake Union and downtown, the Space Needle, and constant float plane action. I visit here very often, it's like a mile away which is nice too! Highly recommend just hanging out and watching people!
Beautiful park! We hit it right at sunset, so the sights were wonderfully peaceful. My husband and I are from south central Texas, so we don't get to see views of water too frequently, especially not with a clear view of downtown. Such a great gem in Seattle, and we're glad to have stopped here. :)
Very interesting and fun place to visit. Pretty safe playground with plenty of toys, carousels, ladders and other. But old gas(?) pipes is my favorite piece. Tons of don't climb signs, but nobody cares
If you are in Seattle and weather is fine, visit here. You can see perfect downtown view. Good place to take a rest or read books. (Some noise because of seaplane+ a lot of canadian goose and their poop)
Beautiful park in North Seattle easily reachable by car. You can see some of the remnant buildings and apparatuses left from the old coal industries. Nice gentle hill to just relax and enjoy the Seattle sky line. Beware of dog poop though, they’re everywhere!
