Travel Tuesday: Pocket Park on the Bay

When it comes to public greenspaces, Seattle is lucky enough to essentially have an embarrassment of riches. If you’re looking for a spot to soak in some vitamin D and sweeping waterfront views when old standbys like Gas Works or Discovery are feeling a little too crowded, allow local photographer Sam Horine to acquaint you with Smith Cove Park! Tucked under the Magnolia Bridge right on the shores of Elliott Bay, you can gaze out at an unobstructed view of Mount Rainier, watch massive ships come and go from the Smith Cove Waterway, and maybe even spot some wildlife! Click along in the gallery below for a little taste of Sam’s recent visit to get a peek at what an afternoon spent in this petite park could look like.
