What are the highlights of Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle?

While every piece of art in Olympic Sculpture Park holds merit, a few stand out. The Seattle Cloud Cover installation is especially interesting, as it was designed specifically for its unique location. This installation is a glass bridge that utilises laminated glass with a photographic design interlayer to showcase the changing Seattle sky.

Some of the art in the park is functional in that it's designed for you to interact with it. The Eye Benches are among the best-known. Located near the water, these eye sculptures have a flat portion facing the bay that you can use to sit down and take a rest during your visit.

Before you visit Olympic Sculpture Park, there are a few things to keep in mind. If you're looking to take advantage of the pavilion on-site, be aware that it's closed in fall and winter. Parking is available in the pavilion's garage, but it isn't free. You may be better off taking the bus to 1st and Broad.

This park is located close to several iconic attractions you may be interested in visiting. The towering Space Needle is just a short walk to the northwest, where you'll also find the Seattle Centre and the Pacific Science Centre.
