Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • I love sculpture parks and have been to many across the country and in Europe ( my favorite being Storm King in upper state New York) so we made it a priority go here. We walked probably 15-20 minutes...  read more »
  • This park was one of the highlights of our trip. It is a beautiful example of how a well thought out park can really change a section of the city. I don't know the history of the park, but it looks li...  read more »
  • The expectation was high, essentially by the renowned sculptors, but disappoints. Does not have the expected magnitude. Has good views of the skyline

  • The sculpture park is a really nice public park right on the water. Grab a snack and a drink and stroll around and check out the unique pieces of art. If you have a little more time pack a blanket and chill out on the hill overlooking the harbor. It's great for people and boat watching. Worth a visit.
  • Gorgeous views of the sound & mountains, wide open spaces near downtown, plenty of secluded areas for quiet relaxation, and obviously a ton of beautiful art to enjoy. It's near myrtle edwards waterfront park, a couple great coffee shops (uptown!) and super accessible from belltown.
  • Worth taking an hour out of your Sunday afternoon to stroll around the sculptures. It's a great place where the whole community really comes together. Also it's a good place to find a free clean bathroom.
  • Another beautiful park in settle with interesting sculptures and great views of the sound and space needle. Wheel chair accessible too. My mom was able to enjoy the oark.
  • When you first enter off the pier side, it seems like a simple walk on the waterside. Keep walking and you'll find a tiny alcove like a beach, with driftwood to sit and enjoy the ocean. There's multiple levels of walks, not too busy. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the amazing uninterrupted views.
