gas works park

Gas Works Park in Seattle, Washington is a 19.1 acre public park on the site of the former Seattle Gas Light Company gasification plant, located on the north shore of Lake Union. The plant, which operated from 1906 to 1956, was purchased by the City of Seattle for park purposes in 1962, and the park was opened to the public in 1975.


Gas Works Park incorporates numerous pieces of the old plant. Some stand as ruins, while others have been reconditioned, painted, and incorporated into a children's "play barn" structure.
