Spreading across about 3.4 ha (8.5 acres), Olympic Sculpture Park is dotted with approximately 20 modern outdoor art creations made of materials such as steel, wood, glass, bronze, and granite and built between 1965 and 2014. You can visit a climate-controlled room with an 18 m (60 ft) long decaying wooden log that hosts various life forms, which you can observe under a magnifying glass. See a 3.5 m (11.5 ft) typewriter eraser, and look for a bright white, 14 m (46 ft) tall head that represents a mountain nymph from Greek mythology. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Seattle trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • We accidentally came across Olympic Sculpture Park while out walking in Seattle. I always love coming across any type of art and particularly enjoying seeing sculptures, so to me this was wonderful...

  • This place is close to Seattle center, so we decided to check it out while walking back from there to down town by the waterfront. That was quite a long walk but the park on the way was nice to see...

  • Very cool & fun place to spend some time outdoors! I really enjoyed the multiple pathways around different sculpture installations, and all the detailed information on each sculpture made the experience extra meaningful. The paths are suitable for children and those who might have a harder time getting around because the paths are very wide and smooth and well maintained. There are real bathrooms on site, as well as a cafe! Will have to check that out next time Parking is limited- plan accordingly! Also, the vivarium is not always open so don’t get your hopes up if you visit during the week!
  • If you haven't been here, or haven't been here lately, it is a fabulous place to visit on the Seattle waterfront. Don't let the name fool you, while there are outdoor sculptures to look at the trail that meanders along the waterfront is the main attraction. You can walk or bike with spectacular views or drop down and access the water to fish or dip your toes. You can continue your adventures along the waterfront to the south with great seafood restaurants and tourist shopping as well as the Seattle aquarium.
