From what we read, this is one of the must-see places. We took the train to the university and then walked a nice walking/biking paved trail. That was the best part of finding this park. It was not quite what we were expecting. We did enjoy looking at Seattle from the other side, but we had to dodge goose poop... More

It's a beautiful park at the end of the waterfront. Beautiful small hills you can sunbathe, have a picnic and enjoy the view. It's also pretty quiet so you get a lot of folks relaxing on the grass in the Summers. Great for strolling around as well. There's not a ton of sculptures or anything to see. But the view... More

Although it was very cold when we visited, it was nice. The views of the city are great, the old machinery was very interesting and the proximity to downtown Fremont make it a must visit.

Old rusted gas-industry stuff is standing in this local Fremont park. this makes the park stand out from other 'just nature' parks. All the old metal is great to incorporate in skyline pictures of down town Seattle. I wouldn't go all the way to this part of town for just the park, but if you are planning to take a... More

This park is really cool and provides an excellent view of the city. A bit cold in December but still a memorable day for sure.

A nice view of the city from the top of the mound. A nice place to hang out and have a picnic. The rusty old gas works are interesting too.

Great area for walking, enjoying the ski]yline of Seattle, growing every year, and to watch the water traffic. The area does attract a certain steampunk crowd so there was some good people watching too.
