Free Seattle: Gasworks Park

11 Jul

Gasworks Park Seattle

Continuing with my “Free Seattle” series, this week we head to Gasworks Park: land of stark contrasts, kite flying, frolic-worthy hills, and 270-degree views.

Perks:

  • Free
  • Lots of wind for kite flying
  • Great view of Lake Union and downtown
  • Some of the best picture-taking in the city

What to Do:

  • Get a closer look at Seattle’s famous houseboats
  • Fly a kite
  • Climb a big hill
  • Take pictures
  • Soak in the sun
  • Walk the dog
  • Play Frisbee, kickball, or anything else that requires wide-open spaces
  • Run like the wind!

Know Before You Go:

  • There’s a free, decent-sized parking lot directly north on N. Northgate Way.
  • Want to grab a picnic on the way? Stop by the Essential Baking Company on the northeast corner of 34th and Woodlawn.
  • There’s no playground area for kids, but there is plenty of room to run, climb, and explore.
