Gas Works Park Seattle / BlueDream Preset Lr

Gas Works Park in SeattleWashington, is a 19.1-acre (77,000 m2public park on the site of the former Seattle Gas Light Company gasification plant, located on the north shore of Lake Union at the south end of the Wallingford neighborhood. The park was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 2, 2013, more than a decade after being nominated

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, constructed in part from what was the plant’s exhauster-compressor building. A web site affiliated with the Seattle Times newspaper says, “Gas Works Park is easily the strangest park in Seattle and may rank among the strangest in the world.”
