Popular year-round, but especially on sunny summer days, Gas Works Park is a popular greenspace with some old remains from an coal gasification plant. A rolling hill on the north side of Lake Union offers a great place to luxuriate in the sun and watch water traffic on the lake. 

Some of the plant remains as ruins, preserved behind a fence but still popular with photographers. but another section of it has been reconditioned and renovated as a play structure for kids.
