Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle

3.8
#11 of 35 in Parks in Seattle
Nature / Park
Spreading across about 3.4 ha (8.5 acres), Olympic Sculpture Park is dotted with approximately 20 modern outdoor art creations made of materials such as steel, wood, glass, bronze, and granite and built between 1965 and 2014. You can visit a climate-controlled room with an 18 m (60 ft) long decaying wooden log that hosts various life forms, which you can observe under a magnifying glass. See a 3.5 m (11.5 ft) typewriter eraser, and look for a bright white, 14 m (46 ft) tall head that represents a mountain nymph from Greek mythology.

  • Great place to walk. Get out of the city, while in the city. this park has about 1/2 dozen large art pieces, but I wouldn't go for the art. the park is small, but it's less than 1 mile from Pike Place...  more »
  • Almost seems like a work in progress? Good concept but was expecting there to be a lot more sculptures.  more »

  • You can get some excellent views here over the bay and harbor area. It's great to come here during sunset. You'll always meet loads of other interesting people here that just come for a walk and want to relax. It can get busy at times but never too crowded. Certainly worth a visit whenever you are in Seattle. It's clean and well maintained.
  • Olympic sculpture park is a good place to relax in a sunny day. Pick your favorite book and a bottle of water you can spend whole day there. Its a great place to sit and do nothing and enjoy the beauty of Puget sound. The sculptures is the sculpture park are kind of hidden. You need to find them. The sculptures are very modern. It is a okay tourist destination. After a whole day of visiting space needle, pike place, etc you can enjoy some time relaxing in sculpture park.
  • Each sculpture is given a good berth, something that seems missing in other sculpture gardens. The space required to tastefully stage each piece is beyond satisfactory. All in all, a truly wonderful place to go for a walk.
  • Really love the plant areas and paths, really wish the artwork was cleaned more often & more interactive. But this place is really nice to walk through and see some sculptures for free
  • A wonderful day with the love of my life and my granddaughter... Wonderful art gorgeous son Blue Skies what more can a human being asked for with the breezes off the salt water from the sound

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
