Once a Native American gathering place and pioneer prairie, and more recently home to the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, Seattle Center today thrives as an active, urban park offering areas for play, picnics, festivals, outdoor concerts and movies.

The 74-acre campus boasts 40 acres of open space. More than 30 resident organizations at Seattle Center present a diverse assortment of arts, cultural, family and sports activities. They make their homes at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall, the Playhouse, Bagley Wright and Charlotte Martin theatres, in the Armory, KeyArena and many of the other structures you’ll find along the way. Outstanding free and affordable public programming creatively presented by Seattle Center Productions continues the whole year-round. We hope you’ll enjoy the gardens, art pieces, water features and green space that mark your path through Seattle Center.
