Wallingford Guide

Wallingford Area - Gas Works Park

Wallingford

This popular city neighborhood is bordered by the University District to the east, Fremont to the west, and Green Lake on the north. Its main drag is N. 45 th St., a busy street lined with many ethnic restaurants, pizza houses, coffee shops, and homegrown Dick’s Drive-In for great shakes, handcut fries, and reliable burgers. There’s a shopping center in a former historical school building, and the convenience of both a grocery store (QFC) and drug store (Bartell). Wallingford residents can enjoy shopping, eating out, and even seeing a movie without getting in their cars, as the neighborhood is easily walkable, which is likely one reason this area is especially popular. On the south side of Wallingford, Gas Works Park on Lake Union provides commanding views of the city skyline, a great hill for flying kites, and access to the Burke-Gilman Trail for biking, jogging, and roller-blading. There’s a nice playground at the park, and the former gas plant structures are interesting to explore too. On the Fourth of July, this park is the setting for one of Seattle’s two huge fireworks festivals and displays – the KING-5 Family Fourth, a day and evening of wall-to-wall people and free entertainment. South-facing Wallingford residences can see the show from their own decks and balconies.
