Myrtle Edwards Park
Waterfront north of Pier 70 and the Olympic Sculpture Park
Another scenic place to explore in Seattle is Myrtle Edwards Park. This park features a 1.25 mile trail that goes along the waterfront and offers a lovely place to run, walk, bike, or skate.
Some of the sights you will see from the trail include:
- The Olympic Sculpture Park
- The Olympic Mountains
- Elliott Bay
- Trains of the Burlington Northern
- The City of Seattle Grain Terminal operations
- The iconic PI Globe
- Public art sculptures
- The Helix Pedestrian Bridge
- Bleached driftwood in coves
The Park has separate paths for walking and for biking.
You can enter the park just north of Pier 70 next to the Olympic Sculpture Park and walk north.
Another place to enter or exit Myrtle Edwards Park is at the Helix Pedestrian Bridge on the north end of the Park. Metro buses can take you on Elliott Avenue and let you off near the Helix Bridge. Cross over the bridge and intersect with the Park walkway next to the Port of Seattle Grain Terminal. Head south from this point.
Note: there are no public restrooms along Myrtle Edwards Park.
