Pier 62 Waterfront Park (Seattle)

Throughout its history, Seattle’s waterfront has been shaped by its uses including ship building, fishing, canning, trading, and transportation. When the 2001 Nisqually earthquake damaged the Alaskan Way Viaduct—a major traffic thoroughfare that largely severed the waterfront from downtown Seattle—beyond repair, an opportunity opened to redevelop the shoreline into a public park. Today, the creation of a new 20-acre Waterfront Park is underway, representing the latest chapter in the history of this working waterfront as it evolves to meet a new cultural need for the larger Seattle community. The inaugural site of Waterfront Park, Pier 62 is a revitalized historic pier offering flexible, active community space.
