Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Jim Ellis Freeway Park on July 3

Join us in celebrating the 40th anniversary of Jim Ellis Freeway Park on July 3 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Freeway Park Central Plaza (6th Ave. and Seneca St.).

Forty years ago, Freeway Park opened to the residents of Seattle. The first park in the United States to lid an interstate, the Park is a feat of architecture and engineering as well as a community jewel. Come celebrate this momentous occasion on July 3 at Freeway Park in Bloom! This community event features free music, food and activities for the whole family including face painting and a tour of Freeway Park’s arboretum with Seattle’s Tree Ambassadors. Celebrate with us from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and stay for the launch of Seattle Parks and Recreation’s second annual free Blues and Cool Jazz concert. Bring a picnic and settle in for a beautiful day at Freeway Park! Click here for more information.
