We watched from 150 feet above as the construction of the park progressed during the months throughout 2006. The labors of the workers to put the physical thing into reality was interesting and enlightening regarding construction sequencing. A huge amount of soil was imported. Moved here, there, then back again a couple of times. - -

- The funniest thing was watching the installation of the Silver Tree. "Do you get 'Silver Coins' as fruit?" - -

- The big eraser, the bench, the rusty waves, and other things were rather novel and inspired some giggles in their presence. Then when the uprooted tree was put into the climate controlled shed, we thought, "There's a lot of money going into a good compost pile!" Still, the microcosm environment should yield much good information for those interested in what grows on a fallen evergreen tree in an enclosure with no other stuff to fall on it. -- -- --

All in all, probably a good place for a sunny day romance with a bit of hugging and so on at a corner of the little walkway in the trees!

Pros: It's love's labor; near Myrtle Edwards Park & Restaurants

Cons: Not interactive - don't walk off path / don't touch

Editorial from

This relatively new park is less than 1 mile from Pike Place, and a great location to bring a picnic on nice days. Parents enjoy the sculpture and kid...
