Sturgus Park is a wooded hillside that sprouts up below the girders of the Jose Rizal Bridge at the foot of Beacon Hill. Its trees and vines climb toward the hillside just west of the Goodwill buildings, adding leaves to the visual feast that northbound drivers have to Puget Sound and the City.

The park was bought by the city in 1904. It was named for realtor John. J. Sturgus in the 1890.
