Wondering what there is to do at Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle?
This underrated park on the Seattle waterfront offers more than free public art and a beautiful view. Every summer, MARKET at the Park sweetens the deal with lobster rolls, fruity slushies, and more yummy treats. They just announced the start of their summer 2023 season, and we can’t wait to head to the park for one of our favorite Seattle summer activities.
Read on for all the info!
Olympic Sculpture Park is a free outdoor sculpture museum that is open daily to the public. It is located right on the waterfront near downtown Seattle. Owned and operated by Seattle Art Museum, this nine-acre park offers a budget-friendly way for residents and tourists to enjoy art and natural scenery in the fresh air.
Some of our favorite things about Olympic Sculpture Park are the views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains, the adjacent pocket beach, and the free events that take place there such as free yoga classes by SAM Body & Mind.
Now that summer is upon us, however, our number-one favorite thing to do at the park is back. MARKET at the Park, the resident eatery at Olympic Sculpture Park, is opening for summer 2023 over Memorial Day weekend. The official opening day is Friday, May 26.
The menu at MARKET at the Park includes crab and lobster rolls, poke bowls, breakfast sandwiches, and even the classic Seattle dog. They also sell coffee drinks and refreshing beverages like slushies for those hot summer days. You can even get ice cream and other frozen treats there.
Keep in mind that the park and MARKET keep different hours. The park is open daily from dawn to dusk, and the market’s hours are 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Fridays through Sundays.
You can see the full menu on the MARKET website or follow their Instagram page for updates.
