ABOUT THE PARK
The Counterbalance Park is relatively level, 12,000 square feet, bordered on two sides by streets and two sides by condominiums.
Seattle Parks and Recreation acquired the site, in 2004. The name honors the counterbalance trolley system that once took people up and down Queen Anne Avenue, a unique element of Seattle's history, and identifies the site as a community gathering place, a place for art, activity, and enjoyment.
