Gas Works Park - Review
Having preserved the Gas Works, which was a major contributing factor towards the developing of industries around Seattle, the Gas Works Park is a perfect blend of industry, modernization and urbanization. Located on the shores of Lake Union, the park let you get an amazing views of the Seattle skyline. As you wander around the park, you will come across the boiler house that has now been transformed into a nice picnic spot with shelters, tables and the fire grills. Check out the open-air barn that has been transformed into an innovative machinery for children. People say that it was previously an exhauster-compressor building.
So, if you have time in your schedule make sure you visit this unique public park.

Gas Works Park, Seattle Reviews
Amazing view of the city! The gas works plant is really cool. The plant is all rusted to a cool orange color, and there's a little bit of graffiti to give it a cool rustic urban feel that really adds to the vibe of the park. It's fun to watch all the boats, and seaplanes float around in front of the city front. Great place to visit!
Gas Works Park is uniquely Seattle and a magical place. Offering some of the best park views of Lake Washington and downtown, this gem also packs in history, hidden corners, and boasts events year-round. Stop by on practically any day and see your city mates and their families exploring alongside visitors. Consider this a top ten stop while making your way around the city.
Fun park. Filled with kids - summer day camp? We couldn't get over how engaged all the kids were! My husband loved watching the seaplanes take off and land on the water. There were geese with goslings in tow, and a hill topped with a great inset sundial (missing its arm unfortunately) from which kites were flying. The bathrooms could use some improvement, but seemed clean and had soap and toilet paper.
I've spent so much time here all of my life. From swimming to kite flying this place is awesome. Sun lovers and groups share the vast grasses to the old works painted like a child's playground, it has something for everybody. Last weekend we attended my high school reunion. Fun fun fun!!
Really photogenic park, especially on a good day. Tricky by public transport. We got off the bus in Fremont and walked along, but it was a nice flat walk and beautiful weather. The park is super exciting as you walk in and see the Gasworks structures themselves. They're fenced off but you can get great photos over the fence if you climb to the top of the grassy hill. Bonus of doing this is there's a beautiful view of the city. Expect to be mobbed by geese, but they're a friendly bunch.
