Tips from locals
A very iconic part of Seattle. From here you see gorgeous views of the skyline, as well as the beauty that Gas Works is. You can walk to the Fremont Troll from here as well.
Steampunk park with a decommissioned gas works right on Lake Union. Good for picnics and kite-flying. Great place to watch the sun set.
A neat experience to see the old gas refinery infrastructure that is now a rustic playground with a great view of the cityscape as a backdrop!
An old gas plant, now a great green space right on the lake. Awesome views of downtown too.
Stunning views of downtown from across Lake Union. This repurposed refinery offers open grassy fields, beautiful viewpoints, and Seattle's famous kite hill. Also the site of Seattle's annual 4th of July fireworks festival!
This awesome park was once the industry capitol of Seattle. Go frolic in the grass, enjoy the massive view of downtown Seattle, and play on the old industrial equipment.
One of the best views in all of Seattle, watch the seaplanes take off and land as you overlook Lake Union.
Best view of Seattle! Pick up a bottle of Rose and some snacks from PCC and have a sunset picnic!
