South Lake Union Discovery Center


You can’t just have fun all the time. Or can you?

What’s truly amazing about South Lake Union is that in a few short years it’s turned from a place people didn’t know much about to one you never want to leave. With Lake Union Park and the great restaurants of Chandlers’ Cove, you can eat, drink, or kayak your way from one side of the lake to the other. And there’s more fun to be had at Cascade Playground and Denny Park on your way up to REI and its free 65-foot climbing wall.

These things are here 365 days a year, but you’ll also want to keep your eyes open to special events, like the South Lake Union Block Party, Pike Place Market Express, and the Wooden Boat Festival during the summer. Or you can take part in author talks, free classes, and travel lectures going on throughout the year. You can learn about them on this very web site, of course, or subscribe to the Discover SLU eNewsletter and we’ll let you know what’s coming up every two weeks.
