Olympic Sculpture Park
Olympic Sculpture Park comprises Seattle’s largest green space, covering nine acres of waterfront close to downtown. The park includes permanent works by some of the most influential artists of the past half-century and in summer hosts temporary exhibits.
More than just an art exhibit, Olympic Sculpture Park attracts locals and visitors who come for a stroll, to ride a bike, take in the view, or to attend the festivals, activities, and public performances held here year-round. The park sits on a former industrial site, and extensive rehabilitation efforts include salmon habitat restoration, beach restoration, native flora planting, and rainwater catchment.
