This 9 acre public park and beach is an outdoor sculpture museum affiliated to the Seattle Museum of Art. The only way to describe the artworks is to use words like breathtaking and innovative and thought-provoking. The sculptures are made of wood and steel and metal and water and granite - all materials of many colors, some with a dash of fibre glass. There are 18 permanent artworks, but throughout the year there is a cycle of visiting exhibitions. To properly appreciate it, you should read up on all the sculptures before you visit; that way you can dazzle novices with your insight when you're actually there.

Talk a walk ladies and gentlemen! Through the path you will find varied art sculptures littered throughout the park and best of all, it's all free! If you want to take a family date here or jog then you will enjoy the park. Aside from the sculptures, it's not really anything mind blowing or amazing. There can be good photo opportunities but you'll probably just spend about 20 or 30 minutes here because once you see most of the sculptures which will lead you down by the piers, there is nothing else really to do. If you do have many places to go, I'd suggest doing those over this park honestly.
You can get some excellent views here over the bay and harbor area. It's great to come here during sunset. You'll always meet loads of other interesting people here that just come for a walk and want to relax. It can get busy at times but never too crowded. Certainly worth a visit whenever you are in Seattle. It's clean and well maintained.
A great destination for a leisure walk alone or with friends. Bring your dog too - everyone is sure to enjoy! Beautiful artwork to admire and learn about from the Seattle Art Museum collection. I, personally, love walking through the Olympic Sculpture Park down to Myrtle Edwards Park, and follow Elliott Bay Trail for a nice walk along the water!
Great walking/running/cycling park right on the waterfront North of Downtown Seattle. Enjoyed the sculptures (some were being repaired) and the beautiful waterfront paths. You can continue North as far as the cruise ship docks (maybe further, didn't try) and as far South as Pikes Market. Lots to see and experience.
My wife and I were pretty unimpressed by the Olympic Sculpture Park. There were very few sculptures and the ones we could find were fairly abstract and, in our opinion, uninteresting. If we had been there to have a picnic, sit by the water, or watch the trains go by then I think we would have enjoyed our visit a lot more. The park is quite lovely for those reasons. Basically, go for the outdoor beauty and not for the art.
