Skate Space in Beacon Hill

It is hard to miss this 22 feet tall beautiful red structure in Jefferson Park. Oregon artist CJ Rench is the man behind this huge red sculpture in Beacon Hill. It was created in association with skateboarder Torey Puwill to make it skatable. I would have loved to spot a skater, but not one in sight at the time I was there.

Kubota Japanese Garden

Kubota Garden is a peaceful Japanese garden in south Seattle, a little bit in the middle of nowhere. Mr. Kubota, a Japanese immigrant, created this garden in 1927.

It is a free public garden and some areas are not well maintained but some parts such as the waterfalls and the bridge are really aesthetic and worth the visit.

Make sure to grab a map at the entrance!

Olympic Sculpture Park

Chose a beautiful, sunny day to walk through Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park and admire the Olympics in the distance.

I love the iconic Eagle by Alexander Calder but there are a lot more great modern pieces to admire.

Echo, the newly installed 45 feet tall sculpture by Jaume Plensa, looks peacefully out over Puget Sound, take a seat and you can do the same!
