As an outside museum, Olympic Sculpture Park is just okay. It has a handful of tall sculptures. That is about it. What I really like about this park though is that it is a nice open space on the Waterfront with a great view of Elliott Bay. This park alongside Myrtle Edwards Park below make for a nice spot to unwind near downtown.

It is a beautiful free outdoor sculpture park and beach that is a part of Seattle Art Museum (SAM). It is a multi-million dollar project of 9-acre of land and home to over a dozen impressive outdoor pieces from some famous artists. It is a great spot to take in the beauty of nature with great art pieces. You can take a leisure stroll in the park or if you are into working out, there are running and bike trails for you. If you like photography, you can get some very cool shots here.

I really like Olympic Sculpture Park. The park has interesting sculptures and artworks scattered throughout the area, and it's located right by the coast, so you get a nice picturesque waterfront view of Puget Sound. It's also an ideal place for a picnic.

Free, outdoor sculpture park with works from some of the most famous artist of our day. A clever design, it spans a freeway ramp and hugs the Puget Sound coastline. A trail takes you to its shores where you can poke around on a beach with the Seattle skyline in the background. Next to the aquarium, walk to Pike Place Market from there, or hop on a ferry.

The Olympic Sculpture Park is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll or a picnic after a day of exploring downtown Seattle. Located just north of Pike Place Market, the park has stunning views of Elliott Bay, Mount Rainier and the majestic Space Needle.
The Seattle Art Museum purchased this waterfront space in 1999 with a vision to create a dynamic space in the heart of the city. Twenty modern sculptures were placed throughout the "Z" shaped park, each with a brief description.
The Sculpture Park is also the host site of Seattle's annual Hempfest, during which hundreds of marijuana enthusiasts flock the area to celebrate the Cannibus plant and promote its legal legitimacy.
