Views Play Area


Ward Springs Park is a neighborhood park located at the corner of 4th Ave and Ward St. at the base of Queen Anne. Formerly belonging to Seattle Public Utilities, this property provided all the water to Queen Anne. An historic pump house on the site displays part of the mechanism that performed this feat. A curved path leads by a play area, open lawn and over a dry streambed. The park has a spectacular view of the Space Needle and downtown.
