Volunteer Park, smack dab in the center of Seattle in the Capital Hill neighborhood, is a peaceful and quaint place to enjoy nature, relax, and have fun. The park features trails to wander through nature, a water tower that you can climb (and catch spectacular views of the city), tennis courts, a shelter house, an outdoor stage, a wading pool, a play area and several monuments and sculptures. It also provides a beautiful backdrop for photos.

It is home to the Volunteer Park Conservatory and the Seattle Asian Art Museum. The Landmarks Preservation Board designated Volunteer Park as a Seattle Landmark on November 2, 2011.
