Location

Parking

South Lake Union Park is at 860 Terry Ave North, Seattle.  From I -5 take Exit 167 (Mercer). Take ramp under highway and continue on along Mercer.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PAY LOTS on Terry and beside the Center for Wooden Boats. They range from $5 per day to $8 per day on Saturdays.

FOR THE FREE PARKING: From Mercer turn right on 9TH Avenue North. You will drive past VALLEY and drive onto LAKE UNION TRAIL. Look right. The parking lot along the lake is free.

IF YOU HAVE THINGS TO DROP OFF. This is where it’s tricky. Again, you are driving along Mercer: Turn onto Terry Avenue towards MOHAI (Museum of History and Industry). It might look closed with big barricades due to construction. Drive across Valley, drive across train tracks. You will come to a MOHAI parking lot. If there are pay spots available, you can park there but probably you’ll just turn into the lot and drop off your stuff, leave a person to guard, and go park the car.
