Lake Union Park is a unique urban gem, close to the center of downtown Seattle. The park provides access to green space and the water and celebrates the cultural, maritime, and industrial heritage of the city and region.

Lake Union has floats along the shoreline at Westlake Ave. N and Valley St.No power boat launching is permitted at this location and power boat tie-up is permitted for up to 2 hours.

Current Project

Lake Union Park Repair
During construction all business in the park will be open to the public: MOHAI - Museum of History & Industry; Center for Wooden Boats; Northwest Seaport; Steamship Virginia V Foundation; Seattle Fireboat Duwamish. We are currently scheduling work to commence between July 10 to August 1, 2017 and will last approximately four months.

This project, funded with 2008 Parks Levy funds redirected from the Seattle Asian Art Museum renovation project, investigates and repairs subsidence issues in walkway areas at Lake Union Park, along the north side of the park adjacent to the water, and east and north of the pedestrian bridge on the west side of the park. Temporary repairs have been made to eliminate tripping hazards, but this project constructs a long term solution to ensure safe and accessible walkways.
