Lake Union Park
860 Terry Ave N
Lake Union Park, on the south shore of Seattle's Lake Union, is home to the Museum of History & Industry, the Center for Wooden Boats and other attractions. Visitors can take in the views of Lake Union, take a sightseeing cruise, explore some of the historic boats that used to serve the region, check out the marina or head out onto the water themselves in a rented boat.
The park is an easy 1-mile walk from the heart of downtown Seattle along Westlake Avenue. The South Lake Union Streetcar also connects the downtown directly to the park. There are a number of restaurants along the waterfront and in the surrounding neighborhood.
