myrtle edwards park, myrtle edwards park address
Myrtle Edwards Park in Seattle, Washington is a 48-acre 19 ha public park along the Elliott Bay waterfront north of Belltown It features a 125-mile 201 km long bicycle and walking path and is a good place to see eagles, gulls, and crows

The park was originally named Elliott Bay Park, but was renamed after the late Seattle city councilwoman Myrtle Edwards in 1976 after her family withdrew her name from what is now Gas Works Park because of the design emphasis on the gasification plant Now, Myrtle Edwards Park celebrates a different kind of plant — the hemp plant — by hosting the annual Seattle Hempfest From 1964 until 2008 the park was the site of the annual Fourth of Jul-Ivar's celebration — one of Seattle's large Fourth of July fireworks shows

The Olympic Sculpture Park, part of Seattle Art Museum, opened on the southern end in 2007 At the northern end is Centennial Park operated by the Port of Seattle, which was also known as Elliott Bay Park until 20111 Near the park's northern end is the sculpture Adjacent, Against, Upon 1976 by Michael Heizer The Myrtle Edwards and Centennial parks are sometimes described as a single park

Railroad tracks BNSF and a fence run along the long, narrow park's eastern side Beyond the tracks is a major roadway, Elliott Avenue West These obstacles make it difficult to enter the park except at the northern and southern ends2 A pedestrian/bicycle overpass at West Thomas Street 47°37′13″N 122°21′43″W / 476202°N 1223620°W / 476202; -1223620, approximately 1⁄2 mi 080 km from the park's southern end, was constructed in 2012 to address these concerns3
