Tips

  • Located on the north shore of Lake Union, the park has excellent water views and a spectacular, unobstructed view of the city skyline. It is a popular spot for concerts.
  • Watch 4th of July fireworks!
  • On Tuesday evenings in summer, you can watch the Duck Dodge sailing regatta, a Seattle tradition that goes back nearly 40 years. With or without the regatta, the skyline at dusk looks great.
  • Walk all the way to the railing by the water and turn around. Catch the structure on the right and green hill on the left. Then go down to the lower level for a fantastic Panoramic Stitch opportunity.
  • Amazing views on clear days of lake union and the skyline. Even on a cloudy or foggy day, the towers are very cool to see.
  • Find the sleepless in Seattle boat house!!
  • Grab some food and enjoy the amazing view! If you can go on weekdays, way less people. Picnic areas and the grills are another great option to spend the day.
  • Summer: skip work with a friend, sit on the grass & enjoy the view. When it Snows: bring a sled. At night: bring your sweetie & make out with a view
  • Did you know? Coal was a major industry in early industrial Seattle. The machinery at Gas Works Park was used to convert coal to gas until 1956 when the city switched to natural gas.
  • from what I could see, all the boat tours swing by here
  • Frisbee time!
  • Watch the sunrise/sunset at the top of Gasworks hill. Excellent in Summer!
  • Such an interesting park and also a great view unfortunately the time we came here Seattle was covered in smoke
  • Great views of the city. Gasworks is a hubbub of activity, with slackliners, yoga learners, dog walkers, picnic people, Frisbee players late into the night. It's a happy place.Watch for the goose poop
  • Come watch the kites, ice block down the hill, bring a camera and a lunch. Stay a whole.
  • Always a great place to visit if you come into town. 4th of July is a must.
  • Bathroom is near the far east side (meridian Ave). Pack ur own soap. I've definitely been in worse bathrooms in Belltown
  • Gets very muddy and slippery after it rains!
  • If you have a little one or a dog, beware of the goose terds.
  • A unique park at the north end of Seattle's Lake Union. It was built on the site of an old coal gasification plant; many of the remnants of the plant are incorporated into the park. 19 acres of fun!
