Gas Works Park, Seattle

(4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Jog, picnic, fly a kite, or just take in the views at one of the city's most unusual and popular hangouts,Gas Works Park. Formerly the site of the Seattle gasification plant, the present-day park is the result of highly creative urban renewal projects. Combining a great view of the city, wide green spaces, and the remains of the old plant, the park retains a special character and serves as a great place for a variety of outdoor activities. Parts of the park have been remodeled into a children's play area, and there's also an artificial hill where your kite can catch some lift. The large parking lot and nearby bike lanes provide easy access. By using our Seattle trip builder, you can arrange your visit to Gas Works Park and other attractions in Seattle.

  • I'm glad we stopped. The view of the city was nice; but, overall, not a lot to do there. Stop by if you are in the area (e.g., driving out to the locks or to Ivar's); but, don't go out of your way.  more »

  • The place is beautiful! I love the scene, even through it rained for a while. I love the hills because where I lived, there are no hills. I really like the multiple picture frame that stands on the ground because it look like an illusion.
  • It's a nice park with some history to it. Has a big hill to climb. Good place to fly kites. You can watch sea planes land and take off. No play structure for kids. Most times there are homeless living in the left over pipe structures.
  • Stunning view at sunsetting. Seeing the whole bay and the city behind is just great. Grass green, water blue, sky orange, air fresh. Definitely will come here again.
  • The old gas refinery structures have been reclaimed to make a fun, funky backdrop that attracts everyone from sunset watching students from nearby UW to fire jugglers and parkour groups! Because of the old refinery, you CANNOT get in the water at this park - the sediment isn't safe. But there's plenty to do outside the water - the view of Lake Union and downtown Seattle at sunset cannot be missed!!! Pack up a picnic or just stroll through to enjoy one of Seattle's most iconic parks!
  • Great open space with interesting features and history. Great chill out spot with a view of the city. You can watch the sea planes arrive and depart. Several good bars and restaurants nearby.
