Urban Experience

Creating an Active and Diverse Environment with Something for Everyone

At the Downtown Seattle Association, we’re committed to creating a vibrant, welcoming, clean and safe 24/7 urban experience. From Pike and Pine streets to the waterfront and downtown parks, we are leading several public realm improvement efforts to enhance how people connect with, move through and experience our center city.  In addition, our ambassadors are out each and every day on the streets of downtown, performing a range of services – from picking up trash and assisting visitors with directions, to staffing our downtown parks and connecting homeless individuals with services. DSA’s advocacy efforts, parks and public realm programs and ambassador services are crucial to the cleanliness, friendliness and vitality of our center city.
