Always a great time to go on a bike ride to Gas Works Park (yes there is a trail, not for little kids but older kids/teens should be fine). Great photo ops from the top of the hill (gorgeous view of Seattle!), you can also get closer up by the water for a shot as well. Great little place to... More

We went here a while back and explored the park. There are some interesting things to see along the way but the final view is breathtaking! Night shots recommended!

This is another place to sit and enjoy the splendid view of the Seattle Skyline. It is a big park on Lake Union- lots of boats, seaplanes and houseboats on the lake. The old Gasworks plant is an interesting backdrop that's been turned into a playground. Fun for everyone!

Be sure to take time to enjoy this landmark. We enjoyed watching the airplanes take off across the lake. It was a little cool out when we were there, so didn't stay as long as we wanted to.

This is a lovely park, the gas works pipes and fixtures are like interesting sculptures coming up out of the grass.

This park and Kerry Park are the two you really need to see when visiting Seattle. Part of Seattle history and a great place to hang out, play frisbee, eat lunch, etc.

beautiful view of lake union and all of downtown from the top of the hill (grassy hills reminded us of lord of the rings. but the old gas plant reminded the guys of a map in call of duty). This was probably my favorite part of our trip! I could spend hours just sitting on a hill and enjoying the... More

Gasworks is where I always take people when they visit Seattle. It has a spectacular view of downtown along with the surrounding hillsides of Seattle. At night you get the power of the lights along the water while during the day you get the greens of the emerald city in full effect. A great starting off point for exploring Fremont.

It is such a small park that apart from walking it in five minutes you can bring a blanket and lay down to watch the ocean and Seattle skyline. It is a cool park, with a hill that you immediately feel like walking up to. Is green and full of popping ducks, no kidding. Nonetheless, worth a visit during the... More

While on a whirlwind tour of Seattle before heading on to Glacier National Park, we had a day to go around the city. This was a great spot to take a breather. The parking is not as difficult to get as most of the other places in the city. With the gas works plant in the backdrop and the Seattle... More
