Astro Biz: Solstice Park

Solstice Park, West SeattleMany businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring them regularly on Seattle Astronomy.

Solstice Park in West Seattle is a 7.1-acre park that includes an astronomical feature. There’s a viewpoint at the high end of the park with stonework that marks where the Sun sets at the equinoxes and solstices. Alice Enevoldsen of Alice’s Astro Info has adopted the park as the site of her equinox and solstice sunset watches; and hey, there’s one set for this Friday!

Oddly, the official website for the park only makes passing mention the astronomy feature. It does note the tennis courts, walking trails, community garden, and p-patch.

Solstice Park is off the east side of Fauntleroy Way near the north end of Lincoln Park.
