Victor Steinbrueck Park

Victor Steinbrueck Park

Seattle has several tiny parks that pack a scenic punch.  One of these is Victor Steinbrueck Park, a 0.8 acre downtown park adjacent to Pike Place Market.  Because of its strategic location, it attracts a lot of Seattleites and visitors looking for a place to take a break.

Here are several of the park features:

In warmer weather, the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department maintains an information kiosk in the park.

The park is a great location for photographers.  It is an excellent place for people watching and dog watching.

On a visit to the park during Seafair, I saw a Navy band putting on a concert and the grassy knoll was jammed with people enjoying the music.

The park was built in 1982 and it is named for Victor Steinbrueck, a Seattle architect that helped lead the citizen rally to save Pike Place Market from the wrecking ball.
