Travels with Charlie: Strolling and Rolling Around Volunteer Park

Thursday, April 18, 2024

Story and photos by Gordon Snyder

Volunteer Park is a fantastic place above Seattle in the Capitol Hill area. Charlie and I parked and began strolling around the paths.

If you haven’t been there lately, put this park on your list. It's in the upper section of Capitol Hill at 1247 15th Ave E, Seattle WA 98112
When you arrive, you’re greeted with an amazing photo point framing the Space Needle.

When you turn around there’s the Seattle Asian Art Museum for exploration.

Wandering down the walkway, you come across a real Seattle Gem. The Volunteer Park Conservatory. It is full of plants that will delight everyone.

I’ve been there many times, but, of course, not with Charlie today. Be sure to go inside and get lost with plants.

As we continued strolling around, we pass the old Water Tank. This is the water supply built in the early days. You can go inside and climb the stairs to the top and catch some great views.

Nothing like rolling in the grass after strolling Volunteer Park

Time to head home. Stop for a moment and catch a great view of the Cascades and Lake Washington.  That’s the 520 bridge in the view.

What a great day for Strolling and Rolling…
