Parks sprout up in the strangest places! This little one, and it's South Passage sister directly across the channel, sit between the pillars of the Freeway Bridge on the water passage between Lake Union and Portage Bay. Finished in 1977, it offers two small picnic on the grass, and several benches on a concrete bulkhead at the water's edge.
Excerpt from Enjoying Seattle's Parks by Brandt Morgan

A propeller from the Arctic Bear a shallow draft tug that saw service in the icy fjords of Alaska was installed at North Passage Point Park abutting Lake Union. Bering Marine of Seattle donated the propeller at the request of Philip Thiel, naval architect and professor emeritus at the University of Washingtons School of Architecture. It was Mr. Thiels idea to honor the tradition of working watercraft that plied Lake Unions waters for decades.

Acreage: 0.8


North and South Passage Points were two of a "patchwork" of properties acquired in the development of I-5. Development of the parks was funded by the Forward Thrust bond.
