At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

It’s day 34 of our 40-day #GetOutAndGO project. Today we’re celebrating Gas Works Park with an incredible view of Seattle, WA. 

Great Green Space + Skyline Views at a Converted Gas Works

Right in the heart of Seattle, WA is a great green space with a lot of history, perfect for burning off the energy of a road trip or for just hanging out with an incredible view.

Gas Works Park is what you get when the city of Seattle purchases the former site of Seattle Gas Light Company and turns it into a public park.





The history of Seattle Gas Light Company remains in the form of remnants of the former plant with everything you’d want in a park. It’s a great place to have a picnic, play some lawn games, and let the kids play on the play set.

The park itself is like no other, plus it brings a hearty steampunk vibe.

It’s a great place to take in the history and skyline of Seattle. This park blends nature with city in a beautiful way with the Seattle skyline and the Space Needle visible across the water.

To celebrate Gas Works, Beyond Clothing is giving away a $200 gift card today. Enter to win here.

Bring a frisbee and play some fetch with your dog. Your best friend will thank you for letting him/her wag their tail freely.

Get Out And Explore Gas Works Park!

Ryan, like most people, is an onion (figuratively speaking), and finds byline bios reductive, though useful. He is writing this himself in the third person, and—to him—it feels strange.
