Forty years ago, Freeway Park opened to the residents of Seattle. The first park in the United States to lid an interstate, the Park is a feat of architecture and engineering as well as a community jewel. Come celebrate this momentous occasion on July 3 at Freeway Park in Bloom! This community event features free music, food and activities for the whole family including face painting and a tour of Freeway Park’s arboretum with Seattle’s Tree Ambassadors. Celebrate with us from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and stay for the launch of Seattle Parks and Recreation’s second annual free Blues and Cool Jazz concert. Bring a picnic and settle in for a beautiful day at Freeway Park! Click here for more information.
