A good little walk and beautiful views of Lake Union. This would be a fun place to bring kids to burn some energy running and playing... or flying a kite!

Great place for a stroll and a view of the city.  Day or night the views are outstanding.  Park is located right on the water (lake union).  Look up the history of Gas Works Park on Wikipedia.  If you go bring a camera for great panoramic views of Seattle and cool pictures of your friends and family in front of...

A nice hang out spot for a beautiful day! The views from the top of the hill are wonderful, the old machines down the hill are really cool and have a sort of history you wouldn't expect to find at a park. Dogs are welcome, lay out and get some sun, or just exercise. Also the parking is 4 hours... More

A really nice park with great city skyline views. A lot of great lookout points for the skyline. Many great places to sit (benches) or have a picnic (grass), of course, when it isn't raining. The park is full of structures that were part of gas processing. There's a little poster by the public washrooms building explaining more about the... More

I am a tourist who likes seeing the out-of-the-ordinary things, hidden gems, sometimes off the beaten path - and this was definitely something that fits that category! The park itself would be wonderful if you are looking for some wide open spaces to explore, but the main attraction is the huge masses of iron and machinery! They have painted in... More

Loads of fun flying kites and watching others fly kites. Worth your time if the weather is dry and you have kids or teens with you. And it is free!

A nice park at the north end of Lake Union. A great view of Downtown Seattle. I go there for picture taking. In the summer there is a lot going on with boats and kayaks and small plains taking off from and landing on the water. This is a good place to watch the 4th of July Fireworks from

Gasworks Park was my absolute favorite thing we did on our trip! It might because I'm from NYC, and loved the peace and tranquility of the hilly park with vibrant green grass overlooking Lake Union and the Seattle skyline. We took a walk to Gasworks Park after visiting the Fremont Troll, and the Freemont Brewery. It was a sunny day... More

Great place to take the kids, fly kites and plenty of running space. Sit and watch sea planes take off and land. Beautiful place to see the Seattle skyline. Bring a jacket as it can be cool and windy being on the water.
