About the Park
No boats land here any more. At this site just south of the Washington State Ferry Terminal, you’ll find only a historic pergola built for the long-defunct Seattle Harbor Department in 1920, and views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains. Note particularly the truncated ships’ prows decorating the pergola high in front. Out in the water, you can still see the upright posts delineating the pier that was originally attached to the site.
Immediately adjacent, the Port of Seattle’s small Alaska Square has been closed to public access because its concrete has collapsed in places.
