Downtown Seattle Park - Garden Walk
The Sheraton Seattle, the Northwest's largest hotel, has unveiled The Garden Walk, a pedestrian walkway and urban park on 7th Avenue in downtown Seattle that incorporates green space into existing elements. Designed to enhance the experience of those traveling to and from the Washington State Convention Center, The Garden Walk is also intended to be a peaceful gathering place in the middle of the hectic city.
The hotel's former blank wall has been enlivened with climbing vines and several large-scale mirrors, allowing for a dynamic and ever-changing space. The mirrors reflect the historic façade of the Eagles Temple Building along with the Washington State Convention Center, dazzling all those who pass by.
|In addition, there is a stunning sculpture at the corner of 7th Avenue and Union Street. The sculpture, entitled Urban Garden, was created by Ginny Ruffner. The 27-foot kinetic water feature has created a landmark entry to downtown Seattle from Interstate 5. Learn More about the sculptor, Ginny Ruffner.|
Our July 21, 2011 Launch event was complete with a Flash Mob.
