Gas Works Park in Seattle is a great place to see Seattle’s skyline and South Lake Union. Gas Works Park is a public park on the site of the former Seattle Gas Light Company gasification plant, located on the north shore of Lake Union at the south end of the Wallingford neighborhood.
Last weekend my son suggested going to this park, since our move to Seattle a few months ago, we’ve been trying to visit popular places. Seattle has a lot of awesome places, and it is close to many amazing mountains and other beautiful areas full of outdoor activities.
During our visit to Gas Works Park, the sky had amazing clouds, but it was still bright enough to enjoy the view. Below are some photos I shot during our visit to this park.
The photos above were taken with a MavicPro drone and a Sony AIII with a Samyang 35mm lens.
Paradise in Mt. Reinier. This place is called, Paradise, because it is. Paradise is an area located on the south slopes of the glacier-shrouded volcano at an elevation of 5,400-feet.
We found out about Paradise a few weeks ago after visiting Stevens Pass. A person working at Stevens suggested that we go to Paradise, he said that we wouldn’t regret it and he was right.
Stevens Pass is a place for skiing and snowboarding, and Paradise seems to be the place for hiking, snowshoeing, and just a place to admire the views of nature.
Below are some photos of our day at Paradise in Mt. Rainier, and just like the other places we’ve visited so far, this has been added to our lists of favorite places to visit again in the Seattle area.
Paradise in Mt. Rainier is definitely a place to visit, and I’m told it is just as beautiful and full of activities throughout the year; if you are in the Seattle area, there aren’t exceptions to visit this beautiful place!
If you do visit during November – May, there is a requirement to carry tire chains when traveling in the park. We rented it from one of the lodges in Ashford, a town you’ll drive by a few miles before arriving at the park’s southwest entrance (Nisqually Entrance). Make sure to check the park’s weather and road conditions before you start your trip.
