This place is magic on a warm summer evening. Great views of the city, hundreds of sailing boats, water planes coming in to land, lots of hip people having a good time. Don't miss it.

Great skyline of Seattle. The park is well mantained and very nice. It's big and we loved it even we had a lot of rain and it was very cold. Definitley I will come back next time I'm in Seattle.

It is neat to see the old natural gas processing plant and great views of downtown Seattle. There were few people here when we visited - probably because there was pending bad weather. There is a small park for kids to play as well as...More

Nice park best enjoyed on a dry day. Bike path will get you easy access. Decent size parking lot but fills quickly especially on nice days.

This park is basically a large, grassy knoll in the city. It has an amazing view of downtown and Lake Union. It also has a large industrial ruin on the premises, which is interesting, but unattractive. It does connect to the Burke Gilman trail, so...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
