Lake Union Park is a unique urban gem, close to the center of downtown Seattle. The park provides access to green space and the water and celebrates the cultural, maritime, and industrial heritage of the city and region. It is home to the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) and the Center for Wooden Boats; see links on the tiles above for information about these places.

Lake Union has floats along the shoreline at Westlake Ave. N and Valley St. No power boat launching is permitted at this location and power boat tie-up is permitted for up to 2 hours.
