About This Point of Interest
Gas Works Park
Located on the shores of Lake Union, Gas Works Park was established in 1975, after a 10 year land revitalization of a previous coal gasification plant. Today, the park is now a part of the National Register of Historic Places and is enjoyed by all who visit. A central feature, the boiler house, was converted to a picnic shelter complete with tables and fire grills, while a former exhaust-compressor building was transformed into an open-air play barn, housing a maze of brightly painted machinery for children.
