"Get out of the city while staying in the city"
Denny Park sits at the north end of downtown Seattle. This little one-block park provides downtown workers a respite from the city. Downtown is already a pretty green area, but the park offers huge shade trees and short little walking paths for relaxation and solitude. The park is home to quite a few transients, but is considered relatively safe. The east side sports and open field and a basketball court for exercise buffs. Several travel motels surround the park, giving visitors and tourists a nice area to get out of the city while staying in the city. Within the free-ride area, downtown workers can hop a bus and take a 3-minute free ride to the park during their lunch break to get away from the monotony of the city. A few restaurants can be found in the area, providing lunch or a snack to enjoy in the park. There is no parking aside for pay-to-park lots and surrounding businesses, but it's a great place to enjoy if you're already downtown.
