Kerry Park

Kerry Parkis a 1.26 acres (0.51 ha) park on the south slope of Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, Washington, located at the corner of 2nd Avenue W. According to a plaque on a wall in the park, Kerry Park was given to the City in 1927 by Mr. and Mrs. Albert Sperry Kerry, Sr., so that all who stop here may enjoy this view.

The park is sometimes incorrectly referred to by local denizens as Highland Park, a reference to Highland Drive, a highly scenic boulevard that borders the north side of the park. Changing Form, a steel sculpture by artist Doris Totten Chase, stands 4.6 meters (15 ft) high in the middle of the park. The park was also featured as the opening scene in the 1999 film “10 Things I Hate About You”
In addition, Kerry Park is featured on the album cover of the Seattle hardcore band Brotherhood entitled Words Run as Thick as Blood. The Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Sherwood History Files is the incredible legacy of Sherwood, who worked as an engineer for Parks for 22 years from 1955 to 1977.

The best place to capture those beautiful panoramic photos of the city! Highland Drive. There is no parking lot, but you can park along the street. The upper level of the park is where you can enjoy the view; take photos of the city, rest on a park bench, picnic in the grass, and people-watch. The lower level of the park features a children’s playground. This park is up the steep hill in the Queen Anne section of Seattle, WA. There is parking right in front of the park for about 12 cars, but there is street parking available all around the area near the park.
