Volunteer Professional Reviews and Guides
"Volunteer Park crowns Seattle’s Capitol Hill, offering winding paths through lawns with formal gardens and a diverse collection of mature trees—a prime example of elegant, early landscape design and perfect for a slow stroll or a half-hour hike. This popular city park is home to the Seattle Asian Art Museum, the Volunteer Park Conservatory, and a brick water tower that offers an unsurpassed 360-degree view of Seattle from atop its 106 steps."
--Allen Cox, Best Easy Day Hikes: Seattle (Falcon Guides).
"This walk begins around 1850, passes quickly through the 20th century, and then returns to about 1900 and Volunteer Park, which was named in honor of veterans who had volunteered to serve in the Spanish-American War. Special attractions: Interesting architecture, art museum, conservatory, observation tower, several restaurants and shops, children’s playground and wading pool in Volunteer Park."
--John Owen, Walking Seattle (Falcon Guides).
