Parks and Public Access



The Port of Seattle has more than 60 acres of parks and public access sites that include scenic bike and pedestrian trails, picnic areas, habitat restoration areas, fishing piers, and shoreline access. Download the Park and Public Access Guide or view it in your browser for more information. Check out the Port of Seattle Waterfront Walking Tour map. 

Effective March 1, 2017: all Port of Seattle Parks will switch to a dawn-to-dusk schedule for open hours.


Several Port of Seattle parks have been featured in The Seattle Times as great places to enjoy the outdoors while watching ship movements and other maritime related activities.

Organic Parks?

Our Marine Maintenance Department uses 100% organic landscaping techniques and plants only native non-invasive species and drought tolerant trees and shrubs. All grass clippings and trimmed branches are composted or mulched for future use. This helps to conserve water and reduce run-off. Several parks have received environmental awards for recycling, water conservation and hazardous waste reduction.

Public Access

Tucked among the seaport's terminals are public facilities such as fishing piers, bike paths, an exercise course, wildlife habitat preservation, a boat launch and numerous benches and paths along the shoreline. 


Stewards for Our Region

The Port of Seattle manages its properties in a sustainable manner to balance the efficient use of those assets with environmental practices.

Partnerships play an important role in this effort, whether it’s the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy, the Lower Duwamish Waterway Cleanup Coalition or the ABC Fuels program.
