When my husband and I went to Seattle this summer, we stayed in Belltown, a hip neighborhood a few blocks north of downtown. We were only a few blocks from the Olympic Sculpture Park, so when the sun came out in full force one afternoon, we walked over to explore it. The modern art won’t appeal to everyone, but anyone can appreciate the gorgeous waterfront views.
The park opened in 2007 and is free and open year-round. The nine-acre, waterfront space was once an industrial park that now features green spaces and unique works of art. You navigate it through a Z-shaped path. According to the Seattle Art Museum, “Weiss/Manfredi Architects designed a continuous and constructed landscape for art. Their vision was to transport art outside the museum walls and bring the park into a landscape of the city.”
