Not the most accessible place, but worth taking a car trip. Poised on the northern shore of Lake Union, with a commanding view of the city of Seattle. Sited on a former location of a gas producer, it still contains parts of the old piping, now painted in primary colors and featured like modernistic sculpture. Good for a starting point... More

If my kids were still little they would have loved this park. The view is fantastic. The machinery that is on the grounds is very creative and colorful. Any other city in the world would have knocked this place to the ground and put in a ball field of some sort. This is a real creative use of space. As... More

A GREAT park for kids to see some of the old style workings. They were able to play on pipes, stands, tubes. Beautiful location on the water, floating houses across the water. Was a beautiful day to enjoy a piece of history.

This is a great park for the view of Seattle, hanging out and people watching but beware that a large part of it is under repair until Memorial Day. About 2/3rds of the park including the Kite Hills are having the grass re-sodded and re-seeded and is completely fenced off. The park is still open and you can visit all... More
