Spreading across about 3.4 ha (8.5 acres), Olympic Sculpture Park is dotted with approximately 20 modern outdoor art creations made of materials such as steel, wood, glass, bronze, and granite and built between 1965 and 2014. You can visit a climate-controlled room with an 18 m (60 ft) long decaying wooden log that hosts various life forms, which you can observe under a magnifying glass. See a 3.5 m (11.5 ft) typewriter eraser, and look for a bright white, 14 m (46 ft) tall head that represents a mountain nymph from Greek mythology. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Seattle trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • In addition to being a great place to walk/jog, the views were amazing. The sculptures actually ended up being more an afterthought for me once I got there.

  • As a resident who lives too close to this park, I can say it is the cleanest and safest park I have been to. Faces the west side so makes for one of the best sunsets of Seattle. Has small "beaches" which are real good. Amazing for walking your dogs or going for a stroll. Goes best with a Starbucks coffee. Cheers!
  • Great place to walk your dog or have a stroll. Plenty of runners come through here. When Seattle weather isn’t being Seattle weather, the views across the water is great and the sunset is superb if you can catch it. There isn’t much to offer here other than a couple of art displays and some walkways but it’s still cool to check out once or twice if you’re visiting.
