Northlake Park
The 7th Avenue NE Street End is not on 7th Avenue or a street end. The property is part waterway, part street right-of-way for NE Northlake Way. The site is located on the southwest edge of the University District, between I-5 and the University bridge, at the intersection of Lake Union Waterway 14 and NE Northlake Way, and across the street from the terminus of 7th Avenue NE. The upland portion of the waterway is owned by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and the remainder of the property is street right-of-way owned by Seattle Department of Transportation. The property was included as part of the 2000 Pro Parks Levy to “Develop park at 7th Ave NE street end at Lake Union.”

This tiny park has a big view. NW 60th Street Viewpoint comprises two benches, a boulder, and a low wood-post fence on a patch of lawn above Shilshole Bay. The park offers views of Magnolia Bluff, the Olympic Mountains, Bainbridge Island, and Puget Sound. The sound of passing trains on the tracks across the street completes the ambience.
Observatory Courts
This small park contains two tennis courts near a firehouse and the old Queen Anne observatory/water tower.
Occidental Square
Occidental Park is in the heart of the historic Pioneer Square district. London Plane trees provide shade; park furniture and nearby outdoor cafe areas provide places to relax; and bocce courts and ping pong tables allow for some easy-going recreation. Seattle Parks and Recreation and partners installed a new play area in 2019 in the northwest corner of the square. Neighboring small businesses include bookstores, art galleries, boutiques, and a variety of other unique shops and eateries.
Olympic Sculpture Park
The Olympic Sculpture Park transforms a nine-acre industrial site into open and vibrant green space for art.

Othello Playground
Othello Park is a nicely designed park, spacious spot near Holly Park. It contains a play area for children, basketball courts, open meadow, and a nice short walking path.
Oxbow Park
Oxbow Park is located in the heart of historic Georgetown. In 1953, Seattle artist Lewis Nasmyth was hired to "rustle up" a design for a western-style gas station in Georgetown. Featuring a 44-ft. wide cowboy hat and 22-ft. high boots, the Hat n' Boots opened the next year to a stampede of customers. In fact, for a time it was the biggest selling station in the state. Legend has it even Elvis dropped by when he was in town during the World's Fair in '62. But in the early 60's, a brand new interstate, I-5, started diverting traffic away from the station. By the late 80's it pretty much looked like trail's end for the Hat n' Boots. That's when some Georgetown residents saddled up to rescue the soul of their community. “The Hat n’ Boots is as important to Georgetown as the Golden Gate Bridge is to San Francisco,” says Allan Phillips, former director of the Georgetown Community Council. “If the Hat n’ Boots were ever to be gone from Georgetown, it would be like losing our soul.”
Park Home Circle
A largely decorative traffic circle at a bend in NE Park Rd. It features a large hedge-like shrub that has a child-sized door to its interior.
Parkmont Place
Parkmont Place is a long strip park in a beautiful Magnolia neighborhood, showcasing views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains which abound, all while you can spend your time watching shipping and the ferries. Enjoy the long walking/jogging path, with benches every 50 feet or so to rest your weary legs or to just take in the view.
Parsons Gardens
Formerly the family garden of Reginald H. Parsons, the park was given to the City in 1956 by the family's children. Often used for ceremonies, this small but lovely garden is a hidden gem on Queen Anne's south slope.
Peace Park
Peace Park was the dream of Dr. Floyd Schmoe, who after winning the Hiroshima Peace Prize in 1998 used the $5,000 prize money to clear a small lot near the University of Washington. From a pile of wrecked cars, garbage, and brush, he worked with community volunteers to build the beautiful Peace Park.
Pelly Place Natural Area
This natural area offers a cool trailhead secluded in a neighborhood that leads you down a forested path.
Peppi's Playground
Located next to Leschi Elementary School, Peppi's Playground is full of unique play equipment, mature trees, and a large central wading pool. Restrooms and a rolling lawn are also located in the park. A small parking lot on East Spruce street and street parking in the surrounding area are available.
Pier 62
The first piece of Waterfront Park to open, Pier 62 is one acre of flexible public space that will be programmed year round with cultural, recreational, and educational programs that celebrate all communities and cultures. It will serve as a vibrant place for activities such as yoga, soccer, concerts, festivals, and more as a preview of the broader scale with the full Waterfront Park.
Pigeon Point Park
Pigeon Point Park is part of the West Duwamish Greenbelt. The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest greenbelt in the city and is home to fox, red-legged frogs, hawks, and bald eagles. The greenbelt encompasses the extended forest along the eastern slopes of West Seattle that is visible from I-5.
Pinehurst Playground
Pinehurst Playground’s name is derived from the community, which originated with a 1926 plat by W.G. Hartranft name “Pinehurst Addition”.
Pinehurst Pocket Park
Pinehurst community members provided the impetus to transform a residential corner lot into this well-loved pocket park. It features two huge Douglas fir trees, native plants and an accessible path around the perimeter. There are two picnic tables on a patio created by a local artist, and a kiosk that often features neighborhood kids' artwork. A small lawn invites lounging or picnicking in the summertime. An artist's pint-sized rendition of a steam tractor memorializes a former resident who used to drive a life-sized steam tractor around the neighborhood.
Pioneer Square
Pioneer Square - the heart of old Seattle - is the place to to go experience Seattle's early history. Turn-of-the-century street lamps line the square. A Tlingit totem pole towers up beside a drinking fountain fitted with a bust of Chief Seattle. (Excerpt from Enjoying Seattle's Parks by Brandt Morgan.)
Pipers Creek Natural Area
The piper’s creek trailhead is unassuming, sitting between a house and a cyclone fence. As you follow this trail down the hillside, the sound of trickling water hits your ears and then all of a sudden, the creek comes into view. As you follow this trail down further, you will start to notice footbridges, and a large lawn area that is part of Carkeek Park. Following the road down further you come to another lawn area, and just past that are sweeping views of the sound and the Olympic Range, and a small beach to leisurely stroll up and down on your days off. The best way to access Piper's Creek is through the Carkeek Park entrance.
Plum Tree Park
Great neighborhood park complete with a play area with slide and climbing features, small lawn area, and true to its name: a plum tree. This little neighborhood park was designed with telephone pole stubs! Arranged in neat rows, the varying stump lengths form stairs, seats, and climbers that spiral through a sandy play area and provide decorative touches around the periphery. An alleyway basketball hoop draws neighborhood athletes. Several benches are also provided and small children and resident squirrels often climb the stub by the drinking fountain to gulp the flowing water.
Plymouth Pillars Park
Located at the base of Capitol Hill on the Pike-Pine corridor, Plymouth Pillars Park features a close-up panoramic view of urban center of Seattle. The newly renovated park features a dog off-leash area, benches, a pedestrian corridor and public art.
