Place to go at night in Seattle

This is one of many nice places to check out the iconic view of Seattle. It was nice to chill here in the evening overlooking the night view of the skyline.

Perhaps one of my favorite Seattle moments; we went at dusk and enjoyed watching people flying kites, drumming, dancing, tightrope walking and playing volleyball. Plus an incredible view of the city skyline with the beautiful industrial castle of the old Gas Works.

Amazing city views from this park, the old gas works complex can still be walked around and viewed from this large grassy hill. Make sure to take some pictures here to get some wonderful city views. On the Fourth of July it is THE spot to watch the fireworks but it will be very packed.

This is a cool little park on the edge of Fremont. The grassy knoll offers excellent views of Lake Union and downtown Seattle to the south. I especially like the preservation of the old gas works machinery. They need to clean up the graffiti and kick out the bums sleeping there though.

Worthy destination. Easy access on the Burke-Gilman Trail. Was there during sunset on a beautiful evening, and it was so relaxing. I loved the uniqueness of the park.

Love this place! The combination of the old gasoline factory and the green hills looks so nice and you can enjoy a beautiful overview of the Seattle from this park. Don't forget to take a blanket , sit down on a grass and enjoy the sunlight.

This park would be a little bit better if you could actually get up close to the old equipment and refinery. The structures were all surrounded by a fence so we were not able to walk amongst them. I'm not sure if this is the way it is all the time but if it is, that's too bad. The park... More

kids love going here and playing ninja warrior on the old equipment. be aware that many homeless have taken up camp under the large shelters, so make sure the kids know this. the kite hill offers great views. it is a shame that the water is considered polluted, maybe someday swimming will be allowed around this great waterfront park.

Meh. It's OK. Nothing to write home about. Some rusty metal, a few pipes, and lots of fences to keep you away from getting a closer look. If you're close by then fair enough, but if you're not then don't make an effort to get there.
