This tiny Seattle Park features a group of beloved architectural landmarks that stood in Georgetown for several decades.  The landmarks were a 44 foot tall and 60 foot wide cowboy hat and a pair of 22 foot high cowboy boots.  These were part of the Hat n' Boots gas station and were widely admired as roadside attractions.  The hat and boots were saved from deterioration, restored, and placed in this tiny park in Georgetown.
