Gas Works Park
Gas Works Park is an example of urban renewal at its best. Take an old gas-processing plant that has outlived its usefulness, and transform it into something everyone can enjoy. 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, bikers, kite flyers, families on picnics and just about everyone else. This is also a prime spot from which to view the Fireworks on the Fourth of July.
Gas Works Park is one of the best parks in Seattle. You can see the old gas work pipes while your kids play on a huge jungle gym. There is a huge grass hill in the middle with a winding path that goes up it. This is a great place to layout a towel and soak up the sun. Gas Works park is not usually very crowded. Also, if you come near the 4th of July, you can get the best view of the fireworks in town. Just be ready to share the view with at least 5,000 other people.
