One of Seattle’s most unmistakable landmarks is the mountainous tangle of iron that forms the centerpiece of Gas Works Park. The now-defunct structure complements a stunning downtown view. This is a choice spot to fly a kite, enjoy a picnic or explore the play barn. The park boasts excellent views of Lake Union and the Seattle skyline, making it one of the most popular spots to watch Fourth of July fireworks. The popular Burke-Gilman biking and jogging trail passes by as well.
