What is an arboretum, you ask? It’s an area devoted to the planting of trees and shrubs. In a way, it’s a museum of trees. The park itself is laced with miles of walkable trails and bridges, and it even houses its very own Japanese garden. You won’t have trouble finding a secluded spot here.

Gas Works Park

Although going into the water is prohibited, the gorgeous view of Seattle that you get at Gas Works Park makes it one of the most enjoyable spots in the city. With so much hilly green space, we recommend using the spot for sprints.
