Terry Pettus Park

Terry Pettus Park is a small “pocket park” located in the Eastlake neighborhood at 2001 Fairview Ave E, 98102.

This park, located along Lake Union’s shoreline, was built in 1970-71. It aligns in part with a recommendation made by Olmsted in his 1903 report, which stated that “[o]ne or more small parks, which may have playgrounds in them, are desirable on the east and south shores of Lake Union.” One of three site that Olmsted identified was located “between East Boston Street and East Newton Street.”

The park, named after a newspaper reporter and activist who helped save the houseboats on Lake Union, includes a boardwalk, shoreline access for small boat launch and a floating dock.
