Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle

(3.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Peaceful park with unique sculptures. There's a nice walkway that connects you to the waterfront by a bridge which shows beautiful views of Puget Sound and the gorgeous mountain range's. There are also events and performance's held here. Great place to sit and sun watch.
  • A gorgeous park, perfect at sunrise. A park that is both large and small. Hidden pathways lead to beautiful monuments that are hidden themselves. Turn the corner an you see something you don't expect. Walk to the edge of the railing and look out to the bay.
  • Really great park to walk to from downtown. We meandered over from the Pike Place Market and spent a couple hours walking through the garden and even witnessed a group of assistants and volunteers working on a new John Grade installation for the SAM near the visitors center and amphitheater. Awesome location, despite the trains, and great installations!
  • This park is beautiful and by far one of the best in Seattle. Great place to take the family, or a date, or simply go by yourself. Saw a lot of joggers and bicyclists as well. And really close to the waterfront (ferries, ferris wheel, restaurants, etc.)
  • Also home of Hempfest Witch spans the length of all 3 parks on the water front. Beautiful year around
