Welcome to Cal Anderson Park

Situated in the heart of Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood, Cal Anderson Park is one of our city's premier public spaces. Featuring playfields, sports courts, a shelterhouse, a wading pool, a great lawn and beautiful fountains, this park is also one of Seattle's hardest working parks, serving over 11,000 neighbors within a five minute walkshed, as well as over 7,000 pre-COVID daily light rail users. Cal Anderson Park is one of Seattle's center city parks and also the center for many public celebrations like Pride and the Capitol Hill Garage Sale as well as demonstrations and protests. Most recently was the epicenter of the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) where people around the region came together to protest structural racism and police brutality toward Black, Indigenious and people of color in the wake of George Floyd's murder earlier this year. This 7-acre public park was renamed in honor of Washington State's first openly gay legislator, after a major reovation in 2005 in which federal funding supported the covering of the neighborhood's Lincoln Resevoir.
