About Lake Union Park
Lake Union Park, located on the south end of Seattle’s central lake, is a new 12-acre park that provides much needed green space and access to the water in a growing neighborhood and city, and celebrates the region’s rich maritime, natural, and cultural heritage. Completed in 2010, Lake Union Park includes a model boat pond, restored shoreline habitat, a tree grove and picnic area, landscaped mounds, a 300-foot long interactive fountain along with Seattle’s maritime and heritage organizations including The Center for Wooden Boats, Northwest Seaport, Virginia V Foundation, Discovery Modelers Education Center, Sailing Heritage Society, Seattle Flying Dragons, United Indians of All Tribes and coming in 2012, the Museum of History and Industry.
