If you are planning to go to see the Fourth of July fireworks in Gas Works Park, 3:00 PM is a good time to arrive. You should still be able to find plenty of spots to stake out on the grass. By 5:00 PM you would have to squeeze in between other people and/or accept a less-than-ideal view. By 7:00 PM, it’s a challenge to walk through the park and the food lines are ridiculously long. By 9:00 PM it’s standing room only – literally – people are lining the paths, which makes it nearly impossible to move.
Hopefully this tip will help someone. All I could find was “arrive early”, and I didn’t know how early “early” was. (We went early!)over 4 years ago
to sit back and admire the city views across the lake. There’s always something to look at on the water, with a constant parade of sailboats bobbing along. Apparently it’s a great place from which to watch the 4th July fireworks.
Love the fact that they left the old gas works standing. Not your average pristine urban park at all!over 4 years ago
No matter what 10 Things I Hate About You tells you, there is no paintball at Gas Works Park.
My dad’s friend used to own a kite shop near Gas Works. When my brother and I were younger he would take us here every weekend after we went to the Varsity Inn across from the kite shop for breakfast and shopped in the aforementioned kite shop.
It’s definitely one of the most interesting parks in Seattle.over 5 years ago
