This park is very cool, the great view of the space needle over lake union. Good for biking or just hanging around in a hill

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!

Great panoramic view of the city from here!! Wonderful place for a picnic or just relax and read a book. You can also see the houseboats from here.

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

Gas Works Park is very very close to our world Geocaching Headquarters. We were here with about 2,000 fellow geocachers or cachers, attending the annual Block Party held here.A fun filled day of caching seminars, food, caching, tours, and really nice to have this green area to rest and take in the sights.

I like the steampunk style, art, and architecture. This place reminds me of the latter. I took a few pictures because I like the idea of nature and industrial era colliding. It's too bad that most of it is fenced and you can't access it closer, which I understand because of liability issues. Other than taking a few pictures and... More

I discovered this park on one of my solo trips to Seattle years and years ago, and it still holds the same feeling as it did back then. I love it here. But over time, it has gotten extremely busy. Parking is near impossible to get unless you circle til someone leaves. Which this time we didnt have to wait,... More

This is a very cool park! The old gas works factory adds an edgy feel to the park, but the view from the park is what sold me. From the hills of the park down to the water, you can see downtown Seattle in the distance. You can also see sea planes landing, people kayaking, and more water activities. Overall,... More

This is worth doing the same day you visit Green Lake. It is a quick stop, free parking, and has a terrific view of the city across the water. If you don't (or) do a Lake Cruise, you can also see the many floating houses across the lake from here, and also see the frequent take-off and landings of the... More
