"Intersects a major medical center and well known park and playground"

The main portion of North West 53rd Street starts at the Swedish Medical Center and runs right into Gilman Playground. The street then travels east toward NW Market Street and splits up, curves around, and gets a little confusing. The area near the hopsital intersects with 17th Ave NW which runs north to south along the medical center. There are a few medical office buildings and labs situtated along this stretch as well as a couple of cafes that support the hospital staff and visitors. The area near the park provides a nice green space of about four acres. The park address is actually 923 NW 54th Street but 53rd takes you right to it. The park and playground offers room and fields for basketball, tennis, soccer, baseball, softball, and even a wading pool.
