Volunteer Park



NileGuide Expert Says:

Volunteer Park was designed by the Olmstead brothers between 1904 and 1909 as a private playground for Seattle’s wealthy founding families living on Millionaire’s Row (14th Avenue). All 48 acres were integrated into the Olmstead design which includes a spectacular dahlia collection and flower gardens, an impressive tree collection, a system of macadam drives, lily ponds, a children’s wading pool and shelter, combination pergola, music pavilion and comfort station, and conservatory building - all completed by 1912.
