Olmsted designed (the famed designer of New York City’s Central Park) Volunteer Park, is a very special place to the people of Seattle. The 40-acre park was originally purchased by the city in 1876 t for $2,000 from a sawmill engineer, J. M. Colman (Colman Park). Whether you’re strolling through the dahlia gardens, marveling at the diverse collection of old trees, viewing the exotic plants at the Volunteer Park Conservatory, visiting the Seattle Asian Art Museum, peering at the Space Needle through Isamu Noguchior‘s Black Sun sculpture or splashing in the wading pool, there’s something here for everybody.
I spent a lovely late afternoon taking photographs in the park with Mamas with Cameras. Warm sunshine, great women, and inspiration all around!
