Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Team

If you've ever received a postcard from Seattle, the chances are that the photo on the card was taken from Kerry Park Viewpoint (sometimes referred to as "Highland Park"), located on Queen Anne's south slope high above the city. With a center stage view of the Space Needle and the downtown skyline, and with the backdrop of Mount Rainier, Washington's most icon natural landmark, you won't find a better view of the Emerald City. Changing Form, a 15-foot high steel sculpture, stands in the center of the park, and has become as iconic as the hoards of photographers searching for the perfect shot.

Once you have enjoyed the view here, head to the other side of Elliott Bay and West Seattle to check out Hamilton Viewpoint Park for another iconic view of the city.
