Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle

(800+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Olympic Sculpture Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Seattle trip generator.

  • Maybe we took the wrong route to get to the park, but my husband almost got punched in the face by a homeless man! The park is a long walk from the downtown area and only has about 5 sculptures. It's ...  more »
  • I was happy to go through the park because the day was beautiful. I could have done this anywhere. The sculptures were nice but nothing to knock your socks off.  more »

  • 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.
  • Even on a cloudy day, the views of the sound are spectacular. The paths are great for both walkers/runners and bikers. Otherwise you can step up to the sculpture space and sit in peace as you take in the cascade of the Olympic mountain range!
  • Wonderful place to walk if you have some time. Free to wander through and the sculptures are very interesting. Don't miss the metal tree at the start.
  • Lovely park on the water with Sound and city views along with many outdoor sculptures. Plentiful seating up top, even on a busy sunny day. Also nice for a long walk along the waterfront.
  • Really peaceful place with a beautiful view of Seattle's various scenic offerings. You have mountains, water, the city and art all in one place. You can also show up 30 minutes before sunrise and watch from the sun come up over the water.
