This lovely downtown park was created as part of a downtown rehabilitation project that included development of Westlake Center and construction of the Metro Transit Tunnel.   The elegant design of the granite pavers was inspired by a Salish Indian basket weave design.

Westlake Park is a great place to take photographs.  It attracts lots of people and it features interesting elements including an attractive water wall, Japanese Zelkova trees, and a giant chess set.   Surrounding the park are a number of beautiful office buildings and the attractive Westlake Center.
