Cal Anderson is located in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood and is the hub of the community. Cal Anderson Park includes a fountain, texture pool and reflecting pool, promenade paths, landscaping, a shelterhouse, a plaza, a children's play area, a wading pool, a lighted sports field, and a number of oversize chess boards. This open park invites walking, sitting, reading, contemplation, informal sports in the meadow, and organized sports on the athletic field.

For walkers: the circumference of the park on the sidewalks, including Bobby Morris Playfield, is 3,325 lineal feet, or about 2/3 of a mile. An interior loop on gravel paths, using the old concrete gatehouse as the most southern edge and passing the cone water feature to the north, is 1,700 lineal feet, or about 1/3 of a mile.

Cal Anderson Comfort Station Renovation

The comfort station is open and the project is substantially complete.

This renovation project is the result of an All-Gender Restroom/Changing Room Study completed in 2016. The study evaluated best practices used by other jurisdictions and schools to address the need for safer restroom and changing rooms facilities for the transgender and gender non-conforming community. Seattle Parks and Recreation consulted with representatives of the transgender and gender non-conforming community in evaluating the best practices for the design. The remodel is scheduled to begin in early 2019 and be completed in July 2019. This project also includes a new sewer line for the water feature that will improve the long-term maintenance.
