I believe this is where Sleepless in Seattle was shot. There's a lot to offer in this Park. They do a big firework display on the 4th here. On regular days, its just tourists around. You don't need to spend a lot of time here...More

This was definitely a unique place to visit very industrial and has great views of the city skyline. There was a caffeine on site which was super helpful. Still poop everywhere people do not clean up after their dogs.

We expected it to be crowded but it wasn't. The views were awesome and we saw some eagles! There is a small homeless problem by the bathrooms, The restrooms are to be avoided at all costs.

Visited the Gas works Park when I last visited Seattle. The name itself gives an idea about the origins of the place. It used to be an industrial area before it was turned into a public park. Nice place to sit down and relax on...More

No fences around the park so I don’t see why not. But as with all parks, be cautious at night. The park is very open area, not much to hide around so you should be able to see who is there. It goes dark around five at... More
