Hiking Volunteer Park

A large, wooded park in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. With a historic watertower, the Asian Art Museum and the Volunteer Park Conservatory here, there is plenty to see here on your walk. 

Volunteer Park is a Seattle landmark, popular with neighborhood residents and visitors for running, walking, taking your dog for a walk or simply enjoying the sun on a nice day. A small playground area on the north end of the park near the Conservatory is fun for kids.

There are multiple access points, and one large parking area in front of the Asian Art Museum.
