Walking the Boulevard: An Olmsted Legacy Professional Review and Guide

"Queen Anne Hill’s upper reaches provide one of the best orientations to the hills, waterways, islands, and mountains that define Seattle. On a clear day, a circular tour of the top of the hill promises Mount Rainier, the Olympic Mountains, Mount Baker, and the Cascade Range.

Early last century, from atop the water tower—then a public lookout—at Lee Street and Warren Avenue North, John Charles Olmsted, stepson of famous landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted Sr., soaked in the 360-degree view while researching what was to become Seattle’s current park system."
