This was an easy thing to do on our first day in Seattle (July 4). The art varies from Calder's sculpture to some others that were less . .. um. .. famous. The views of the sound and the shore are also wonderful.

The Chihuly Garden and Glass was more my speed as far as art is concerned, but you can't beat the price of this location: FREE!

I had visited Seattle many times in the past, but never had I visited Olympic Sculpture Park, despite its position on my regional bucket list. Albeit small, the free park is a must-see for both art/design aficionados and the general public. It’s a genuine asset for the Seattle community.

Sadly I happened to visit when it was sporadically raining, which wasn’t ideal by any means. Thanks to several covered picnic areas and Puget Sound lookout spots, though, visitors can reasonably make do with a bit of a shower. (That’s Seattle, eh??) All in all, please check out the Olympic Sculpture Park; it will be incredible!

This is quite a break from the adjacent business on the piers.
The meandering paths, bridges, lawns lined with small and large art work warrant a visit.
The bay views are a bonus.
The varied gardens offer another attraction.

This was my first visit to Olympic Sculpture Park. It was a nice day, and a nice visit with some nice views, but it’s quite small. Considering the shortest amount of time you can pay for parking is 2 hours, I was expecting more. Probably walked through it less than 15 minutes.

Most art-museum sculpture gardens I've been to had at least, say, 20 sculptures. Not this one. Besides a big Calder, there's little else. The ocean views are great. Oh, and the pavilion was closed at 10am on an early-October Saturday.

2,200 ft zig zag walk passes sculptures with magnificent backdrop. Very well done with lots of seating & views.

The pavilion is empty but there are clean bathrooms, a water fountain, map on the wall and some information about the history and inception of this park.There is free Wi-Fi available. The park opens :30 minutes before sunrise and closes :30 minutes after sunset. They were plenty of garbage cans, cameras add guards.

Sculptures for beautifully place on our way down the hill. They were interesting from all angles. I really appreciated the eyes they were seats in the back.

If you like outdoor art and little slices of nature in the city this is for you. We were staying down the street and needed to kill time before meeting family for dinner so we walked through here. Beautiful gardens! Beautiful art! Near the water, and a nice little stroll. Definitely worth it if you are near the area. Free!

The pandemic has taught me that I live in a pretty nice city. During normal times, I’m traveling all over the world. But the pandemic has taken that part of my life away from me. Thus, the pandemic has gotten me to explore my own city, Seattle. I have discovered that my hometown, Seattle, is one of the great cities in the world. Seattle is especially rich in public parks. One of the best parks is the Olympic Sculpture Park (OSP). The OSP is a part of the Seattle Art Museum (SAM). It is a lovely place to take a stroll and view sculpture art. It is an especially excellent place for sketch artists. There are many pieces for sketch artists to sketch. It is one of the most relaxing places in the entire city. The OSP is an exceptional place to take a stroll, walk your dog or admire the beauty of Seattle’s outdoor art.

Visiting this peaceful span of green space today, there are few, if any, traces of the industrial complex that used to occupy the land till the late-1970s. And considering the wonderfully scenic views of Puget Sound from many vantage points in the park, the coversion by the Seattle Art Museum certainly appears to have been the corect decision. What immediately stands out are the enormous modern art (some might say, somewhat avant-garde) sculptures that are scattered all over the park. Personally, most of the sculptures didn't really appeal to me but everyone's got their preferences and they do serve as topics of conversation. As a park, it was a very pleasant to have a stroll, a run, walk the dog (or the kids), and generally, just relax.

The Olympic Sculpture Park is a beautifully maintained park right on the water with several nice art installations inside. It is not very big but there are killer 180 views. Definitely worth checking out if you are down near the waterfront.
