Pike and Pine Hanging Baskets

Pike Pine Hanging Baskets

For a second straight summer, the Downtown Seattle Association is bringing back cascades of color to the Pike-Pine corridor. With support from local businesses and partners, we’re hanging baskets of colorful flowers, ferns and other native plants from power and light poles along Pike and Pine from First to Ninth avenues. These seasonal baskets are part of our ongoing work to enhance the Pike-Pine corridor and improve the urban experience for shoppers, workers and visitors. Longer-term, the DSA is spearheading a $20 million revitalization of Pike-Pine, with a vision of transforming this retail corridor into a more inviting commercial and pedestrian experience.
