    A Brutalist fountain is one of the many highlights one can find in this cool urban maze that floats like a fortress of nature and concrete above Interstate 5.

    The city really is trying to clean up this park's image and get normal law-abiding people to enjoy it. It really is a beautiful place, and the water sculpture is so cool! Check it out! (but don't fall

    If brutalism is your architectural jam, you really need to gallivant around here and find some secret passageways.

    Delightful by day. But you have to love right angles, stairs, and concrete. A setting in the urban fantasy novel HELLEPHANT!

    This park gets credit for helping me on my 3 mile walk + tons of stairs lunch workout! These stairs are no joke, you'll be sweatin'!

    Cool park. Some sketchy people hanging out like the rest of Seattle though.

    Didn't realize this place was "sketchy". Perhaps I don't pay attention, but appearances are deceiving.
