Located in the heart of Seattle, Volunteer Park is home the Volunteer Park Conservatory and the Seattle Asian Art Museum.
One of my favorite parks in Seattle. Beautiful panoramic views of the city from the tower. Located by the reservoir, greenhouse, and museum. Nicely maintained and lots of activities.
Don't believe what others may have told you.. You CAN'T watch 4th of July fireworks from the donut statue at the park. The fireworks don't really clear the trees. You CAN however see a lovely sunset.
On a cold day, go into the Conservatory and check out the cacti and orchids. On a clear day wind your way up to the top of the Water Tower and catch the 360 view.
This park is home to one of Seattle's best views, a historic water tower, a conservatory built in 1912, and Seattle Asian Art Museum.
If you run your dog there and forget his water bottle, handy tip: check the south border, near prospect and 11th. There youll find a building's outdoor hose which is handily(!) unlocked
check out the wooden sculpted owl sitting in the tree just to the south side of the fish pond near the black doughnut!
Feel the burn in your legs as you climb the historic water tower and be rewarded with a beautiful 360 view of Seattle!
The reservoir is good for hanging out and picnics. The water tower offers a great view.
Enjoy the strange juxtaposition of life (kids playing at the playground) and death (the cemetery right through the chain link fence).
This park has central Seattle's biggest and best collection of trees to sit against while reading.
If the weather's nice, expect tattooed shirtless guys balancing on slack lines behind the museum.
Go find the carniverous plants in the conservatory, and then soothe your frightened spirit by looking at the orchids.
Climb to the top of the tower on a clear day. Or run up and down the stairs several times for a good workout.
walk around the neighborhoods surrounding the park, especially in spring. great houses and gardens
A must walk park in Seattle. Great views of Space needle from Water tower.
Go there on a sunny day and enjoy the Sun, trees and green grass :)
Don't go when the weather is predicting a beautiful sunny day!! Always go when the Weatherman says it's going to rain ! Lo
Nice Park to walk, with a museum and large area.
Go to Volunteer Park water tower. Climb to the top. Find your neighborhood. Imagine Seattle 100 years ago.
Beautiful park. Can't wait to explore it more thoroughly.
Asian Art Museum & The Volunteer Park Conservatory are closed on Mondays
One of the nicest parks in the middle of the city.
Bring a water gun. For self-defense if nothing else
