Park Introduction:

The Mount Baker Ridge Viewpoint is located directly atop the I-90 tunnel at the high point of the Mt. Baker Ridge, at 1403 – 31st Avenue South (see map) in a small neighborhood commercial district. The Viewpoint offers a gathering place and panorama to the west taking in the sunset as well as downtown, Olympic Mountains, and Elliott Bay. Enjoy the expansive landscape by day and the sparkling lights of the city by night.

Park Design:

The park was a community-driven effort in collaboration with Seattle Parks and Recreation, dedicated in 2009 after ten years of effort.

The park features a platform extending out from the sidewalk making the view accessible. Basalt “sunset stones” function as seating and as markers of the setting of the sun throughout the year, including the solstice and equinox, like a contemporary Stonehenge.
