It is a public park on the site of the former Seattle Gas Light Company gasification plant, on the north shore of Lake Union at the south end of the Wallingford neighborhood.

This park is also well known for the small hills and excellent views of the Seattle skyline, it also includes a children's theme park in which even I had a lot of fun, a lot of space to run or do a picnic with view. This park in also includes a free parking. Although you can find some homeless groups in some areas of the park, gas work oark is considered a safe park by the city.

A little bit of history about it, Gas Works Park contains remnants of the sole remaining coal gasification plant in the USA.

The park opened to the public in 1975, it was designed by Seattle landscape architect Richard Haag, who won the American Society of Landscape Architects Presidents Award of Design Excellence for the project.
