Instead of “Emerald City” perhaps we should switch to “Foggy City”?
I particularly like the contrasting leaves of the two trees on this corner. I get to walk by every day I hike (yes, hike or hill climb or whatever you want to call it) to work.
This is a unique park as it is located above I-5. It is close to the Washington State Convention Center, many hotels, and is right between downtown and First Hill. There are benches, beautiful flowers, and sometimes even hippie-style dance parties. If you come, make sure to enjoy the park BEFORE sunset. It tends to get a bit sketchy at night. Just sayin’.
