About the Waterfront Past and Future:
An Ever-Evolving Shoreline
Explore the history, communities and parks that make up Seattle's Waterfront while learning some history along the way! For thousands of years Seattle’s Central Waterfront has been a place people gather to trade, work, find food and useful materials, and play. Over time, however, the landscape has been shaped by natural and human forces and that evolution continues today as the new Waterfront Park develops. Join historian Jennifer Ott for an urban hike from the Olympic Sculpture Park to the former site of Sdzidzilalitch, a Duwamish village where today’s Pioneer Square neighborhood is located. Tour highlights include the Alaskan Way Seawall, a sunken vessel, the site where a ton of Klondike gold arrived in Seattle in 1897, and a glimpse of one of the many railroad tracks that once dominated the shoreline. See full tour details here.
We are operating this tour through the end of September as one of three urban adventures provided by the Downtown Seattle Association's “Welcome Back to Downtown campaign.” (See other two urban hikes here!)
