It was fun to get this bird's eye view of the new waterfront park in the South Lake Union/Cascade neighborhood. Being married to a wooden boat lover, I've spent a lot of great family time at the adjacent Center for Wooden Boats. It looks like some of the park's hardscape includes boat shaped planters in the lawn areas (see full plan here). The new Safeco pedestrian bridge in the lower left of the photo leads to meandering park space along the Westlake shoreline. The Seattle Streetcar SLUT line stops at Lake Union Park, and I predict after the park receives its finishing touches in 2010 it will become well utilized for events and much appreciated by Seattlites.
