This is a re-purposed industrial site that has become a popular Seattle park. It gives great views of Lake Union with the boat and seaplane activity. In the distance you can see the many construction cranes of Seattle. There are restrooms and drinking fountains. The...More

There were Easter sunrise services on Kite Hill. Plenty of green space to walk and stretch your legs.

Funky park covering a toxic superfund site. Buried under this beautiful park is an old creosote pit. Great views of the city. Bring a blanket so you can cover the goose poop when you sit down (they don't tend to go onto the hill).

My son & I spent roughly a week in Seattle during the spring break of his sophomore year. Gas Works Park was one destination on the itinerary. It’s a wonderfully unique steampunk experience that also offers great views.

Cool, rusted old factory, remnants right in the middle of this beautiful park. Climb the big hill in the middle for a spectacular veiw.

I like this park, but don't like how dirty it has gotten. I can't really take my kids here anymore as it's always smelling like weed. I still like to do photoshoots here with my clients as it has great city views and of the...More

With less than 20 acres, Gas Works Park (GWP) has much to offer to locals and visitors. The best part of its charm lies in the Seattle Downtown backdrop across the Lake Union, especially when you stand feet away from the clear water, leaving your...More

No fences around the park so I don’t see why not. But as with all parks, be cautious at night. The park is very open area, not much to hide around so you should be able to see who is there. It goes dark around five at... More
