History of the Sculpture Park: “The Olympic Sculpture Park transforms a nine-acre industrial site into open and vibrant green space for art. The waterfront park gives Seattle residents and visitors the opportunity to experience a variety of sculpture in an outdoor setting, while enjoying the incredible views and beauty of the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound.

The Olympic Sculpture Park is owned and maintained by the Seattle Art Museum. It is immediately adjacent to Myrtle Edwards Park, which is owned and maintained by Seattle Parks and Recreation, and Elliott Bay Park which is owned and maintained by the Port of Seattle.

  1. The park is filled with interesting sculptures
  2. The park closes at dusk and opens at dawn, it’s very safe and there’s full time security
