    • Gas Works Park

      Gas Works Park, in Seattle, Washington, is a 19.1-acre (77,000 m2) public park on the site of the former Seattle Gas Light Company gasification plant, located on the north shore of Lake Union at the south end of the Wallingford neighborhood. The park was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 2, 2013, more than a decade after being nominated.Gas Works park contains remnants of the sole remaining coal gasification plant in the United States. The plant operated from 1906 to 1956 and was bought by the City of Seattle for park purposes in 1962. The park opened to the public in 1975. The park was designed by Seattle landscape architect Richard Haag, who won the American Society of Landscape Architects Presidents Award of Design Excellence for the project. The plant's conversion into a park was completed by Daviscourt Construction Company of Seattle. It was originally named Myrtle Edwards Park, after the city councilwoman who had spearheaded the drive to acquire the site and who died in a car crash in 1969. In 1972, the Edwards family requested that her name be taken off the park because the design called for the retention of much of the plant. In 1976, Elliott Bay Park, just north of Seattle's Belltown neighborhood, was renamed Myrtle Edwards Park.

    • Fremont Troll

      Le Fremont Troll (« troll de Fremont ») est une sculpture située sous la partie nord du George Washington Memorial Bridge, dans le quartier de Fremont, à Seattle. L'avenue située au-dessus a été renommée Troll Avenue en 2005. Inspirée du conte populaire norvégien Les Trois boucs bourru, la sculpture est le résultat d'un concours organisé par le Fremont Arts Council (en) en 1989-1990 afin de redynamiser cette zone située sous le pont afin qu'elle ne soit pas utilisée par des dealers. Les artistes sont Steve Badanes (en), Will Martin, Donna Walter et Ross Whitehead. Le public peut monter sur cette statue, qui mesure 5,5 mètres. Il s'agit d'un troll en béton armé qui tient dans sa main une véritable Volkswagen Coccinelle qui contenait à l'origine, entre autres choses, un buste d'Elvis. Moins de quatre mois après son installation, la voiture a été vandalisée et le buste d'Elvis ainsi que les plaques d'immatriculation californiennes du véhicule ont été volés. Afin d'éviter tout autre acte de vandalisme, la voiture a été remplie de béton.

    • Alki Beach

      Alki Point is a point jutting into Puget Sound, the westernmost landform in the West Seattle district of Seattle, Washington. Alki is the peninsular neighborhood on Alki Point. Alki was the original white settlement in what was to become the city of Seattle. It was part of the city of West Seattle from 1902 until that city's annexation by Seattle in 1907. The Alki neighborhood extends along the shore from the point, both southeast and northeast. To the northeast it continues past Alki Beach roughly to Duwamish Head, the northernmost point of West Seattle. Alki Point also marks the southern extent of Elliott Bay; a line drawn northwest to West Point marks the division between bay and sound. The Duwamish called it "Prairie Point" (Lushootseed: sbaqWábaqs). The name refers to prairies near the point that were maintained through seasonal burning by indigenous cultivators. It was a place of native occupation as well as colonial reconnaissance well before 1851. Other names for the point include Battery Point, Me-Kwah-Mooks Point, and Roberts Point.
