Westlake Park

Westlake Park sits at the epicenter of downtown’s retail core. Since 2015, DSA has managed the park through an agreement with the City of Seattle. Guided by a vision to create a more active and welcoming space, we’ve brought in colorful furniture, games, music, food and kids activities. We’ve also hired park staff and full-time security. The result? A bustling urban gathering place that attracts workers, shoppers, visitors and kids of all ages. Live music and games in the summer — and a holiday carousel and pop-up market in the winter — create a unique downtown experience for hundreds of thousands of people each year.
