We were in Seattle for a few days, staying at an apartment near the Gas Works Park. Spent Sunday strolling around, sitting on the grass, watching the sailboats, kayaks and paddle boards go by. Lots of family groups enjoying the afternoon, as well as people of all ages strolling or just sitting and enjoying the day.

If you live here, it has a great view and is something new to do. If you are a tourist, do something else with your precious time.

this is a big Meehh. Why does this place exist?. If you are from seattle maybe a place to hang out but as a tourist, move on, see something else, don't waste your time.

Located on the edge of the Fremont neighborhood, Gas Works Park provides a sweeping view of downtown Seattle in positive, family friendly atmosphere.

Climb up the hill for a great view of the city and the lake. Parking can be tough but the view is worth it plus the the Gas works is pretty cool

Nice place to climb up to the top of a hill and see the city. It's a reclaimed space that really makes the most of its location. Lots of kids playing in the fields. Perfect on a sunny day.

We took an afternoon walk on the path here, ending at the waterfront where we watched a fleet of kayakers work their way around Lake Union. Terrific views of the city across the lake, and the old gasworks makes for interesting exploring. Parking was free and available, even on a summer afternoon. Nice place to visit after checking out UW.

A charity bike ride was finishing in the park which made for a fun atmosphere and large crowds of people. The views of the City and surrounding water were beautiful.

We visited on a Monday evening just before sunset. It was initially a bit difficult to find, as the high bridge you cross (from the direction of downtown) overshoots the area where the park is located. You have to exit after the bridge and basically double-back south towards the water. Phone-navigation is a big help finding this park. Parking appeared... More

My fiancé and I went to Gas works park in March 2016. It was raining the day we went but we didn't care. It was fun and had a very nice view.
