- Named for the mid-century Seattle architect and artist who fought to preserve the Pike Place Market, this park is minuscule but beloved. The grassy knoll provides a much needed rest and lunch spot for market visitors and workers. The view of Elliott Bay (over the admittedly horrendous Alaskan Way Viaduct) is fabulous. Steinbrueck's son, Peter, is now a member of the city council, and is fighting to preserve the park's views from a hotel developer who wants to block them. The Seattle tradition of liberal politics lives on.
