Bergen Place Park in downtown Ballard is located in the heart of the business district on the triangular site between Leary Avenue, 22nd Avenue NW, and Market Street.

Redesigned in 2004, benches and trees line the open square. The park is home to Artist Jenn Lee Dixon's "Witness Trees" and a community information kiosk.

Bergen Place was named for Bergen, Norway, one of Seattle's International Sister Cities.

Acreage: 0.2


Bergen Place Park was developed utilizing Forward Thrust funds and dedicated by King Olaf of Norway in 1975. The Crown Hill/Ballard Neighborhood Planning Association proposed the redesign of Bergen Place Park in the 1998 neighborhood plan.
