History

In 1974, Gas Works Park opened up on the northern shore of Lake Union in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle. The site was earlier a gas manufacturing plant from 1907 to 1956, and the park still has the five-story high cracking towers and other structures. The architectural firm (Jefferies-Norton Corp) of Richard Haag designed this park. Richard Haag was a professor in the Architecture and Planning Department at the University of Washington. Haag fell in love with the cracking towers and kept them as the focal point of his design.
