Dwellers in Seattle apartments know that their city is filled with an abundance of exciting outdoor activities.
There are over 6,200 acres of parkland spread out across more than 400 parks and open spaces in Seattle. Apartments are nearby many of these beautiful outdoor spaces. Photographers and tourists alike delight in the views offered by popular Kerry Park. That’s because it offers incomparable overlooks of the city skyline, Elliot Bay, and even glimpses of Mount Rainier. Stop by to see the sunset then watch as the skyline and bay begin to glisten with evening lights.
Nature lovers especially enjoy Discovery Park, the largest and one of the most beloved parks in Seattle. Apartments in north Seattle are proximate to the park. The park features stunning views of Puget Sound and the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges. Its biological diversity and varied terrain attract those looking for a quiet escape into nature near Seattle.
Apartments can be found close to a couple of beautiful gardens as well. Kubota Gardens, near south Seattle apartments, is a lovely Japanese garden with meandering paths across streams, lawns, and forest. Visitors find the garden’s bright flowers and flowing waterfalls to be quite serene and relaxing, and spend hours exploring the winding trails. This is a great space to bring kids and pets if they are tired of being cooped up in Seattle apartments.
More lovely gardens can be found at the Washington Park Arboretum, near central Seattle apartments. This arboretum features an impressive 4,000 species of trees plus many other beautiful plants. If you’re looking for a way to liven up a day at the park, try viewing the trees by canoe or kayak.

The system currently includes 120 miles of bike lanes, 120 miles of signed bike routes, and 45 miles of shared use paths. This system connects Seattle apartments with many entertainment, recreation, and, of course, outdoor attractions.
