This is an enjoyable park to spend the day lounging near the water and playing in the grass. It's a fine juxtaposition of industry and nature...seems like a good reflection of Seattle.

This is a lovely free park with plenty of free parking---the view from the highest point is as good as the view from the space needle! If you visit Seattle, you must go here!

This is a cool place to take the kids and to get a view of the Seattle skyline. Some parts of Seattle used to get their gas from this place and it is a walk back in history.

We came out to kill some time, and I found myself really enjoying this place. It is interesting to look at and wonder what it was before. I think it was a creative way to make lemonade out of junk. It was nice to walk around and think, take some photos of the skyline, go listen to the drum circle... More

Not only is this park historic, but it has amazing views of downtown Seattle and more. I came on Labor Day on a beautiful sunny day, and there were so many boats and people out, which adds to the charm. Even with it busy, it remained peaceful and relaxing!

Went here after we saw the Fremont Bridge Troll. Very cool view of downtown, seaplanes taking off lots of boats and a great sunset view. Nice place to relax and take it easy!

Someone suggested that we visit this park, and we're glad we did. Waterfront views, cool industrial structures, walking trails, top of the hill provided a great spot to watch the seaplanes taking off and landing. Lots of space, so it didn't feel crowded. Many stand up paddlers and kayakers were out. Also many other dog-walkers -- and I was impressed... More
