We actually came through here on Segways and took a break. Great water fountain....you can walk down it and kids can play in the water. Nice view of the Space Needle.

This is a great open space in the center of the city. There are lots of free activities for families (playground, fountain, festivals), as well as the Chihuly, MoPop, Space Needle, etc.

My wife and I enjoyed some time here prior to the Game of Thrones concert at the Key Arena. We particularly enjoyed the International Fountain. There are a lot of fun things to see and do here.
