"School and park access, used mostly for parking"

Sandwiched between Seattle Central Community College and Cal Anderson Park, Nagle Place is used primarily for on-street parking for students. This short three-block street provides back-door access to the school and a wide-open entrance to a terrific park for lounging, picnics or playing in between classes. There are a few homes just northeast of Nagle Place, but none on the street. Nagle Place is one block east of Broadway, where one can find some fantastic restaurants and shops, boutique grocers and some of Seattle's best bars and clubs.

Cal Anderson Park has some nice walking paths and a few sports fields for students and nearby residents to enjoy. The street, itself, is less treed that most in Seattle, though it does have a few on the park side of the road. Mostly pedestrian, the street generally only sees traffic when students are coming in to park for class, so it's a generally safe place to walk around.

"Great access to the park, but not a great place to live"

Nagle Place is one block east of Broadway on Capitol Hill. It is approximately 2 blocks long, bounded to the south by E. Pine Street and to the north by E. Denny Way. The east side of the street is entirely public property, a huge park and several sports fields. Once known as the Bobby Morris Reservoir, it is now called Cal Anderson Park. The park has beautiful water fixtures, a huge running fountain with a stone stream, and a reflecting pond. There is a modern playground in the southeast corner, with all the latest equipment. The south half of the park contains tennis courts, basketball courts, and a baseball diamond.

However the west side of the street makes this street feel little more than an alley way. The west side is almost entirely the backside of buildings which front onto Broadway, parking lots, and dumpsters. Parking is allowed on one side of the street, but the street is not well maintained, with trash gathering on the sidewalks, and while the park side is well lit, the street side is not. It's a good street to use getting from point A to point B, but you wouldn't want to stop on it for very long.
