    It has a great view of Seattle with Lake Union in the foreground. There is also an old gas mill. It is a great place for pictures. There is also a playground.

    The nation's crown jewel of adaptive reuse. The views from this park solidify Seattle's unofficial rank of most beautiful city in the USA.

    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.

    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.

    Really awesome park with great views of Seattle. Fun to explore the nooks and crannies, but a shame you can't (legally) climb on anything!

    Don't go here for the 4th unless you park super far away, take the bus, or walk there. The traffic is a nightmare after the show!

    Bathroom is near the far east side (meridian Ave). Pack ur own soap. I've definitely been in worse bathrooms in Belltown

    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. Read more
