PRICE: $10/person
LOCATION: Meet the Salmon-Safe Tour Guides at the main entrance to the Park at the corner of the Park at Broad and Western Ave at 2pm (2901 Western Ave, Seattle, WA)

Join the team of Salmon-Safe and Stewardship Partners for a walking tour of Olympic Sculpture Park for a tour of this award-winning nine-acre park on Seattle’s waterfront. The sculpture park offers monumental contemporary sculptures and breathtaking views of t​he Space Needle, Olympic Mountains, and Puget Sound. Stroll along a 2,200-foot path that zigzags from the pavilion to the water’s edge to tour the park and its surroundings.

The Seattle Art Museum resolved to return the site as much as possible to a functioning ecosystem, while providing a unique setting for outdoor sculpture and public recreation. This design afforded a wide range of environmental restoration processes, including brownfield redevelopment, salmon habitat restoration, native plantings, and urban ecological design strategies which helped them achieve Salmon-Safe certification in 2008.

Bring practical walking shoes, water bottle and umbrella as needed.
