Hike around Lake Union and enjoy an audio tour honoring its ecology and history

The daily rains have subsided, and it’s time to hike a new loop and listen to stories about our city!  Field Notes: Observing Lake Union is a year-long, temporary public artwork by Studio for Urban Projects that honors the ecology and history of Lake Union.  The cell phone audio tour is available at four points along the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop: Lake Union Park, Fairview Park, Gas Works Park and at the mouth of the Lake Washington Ship Canal. The call-in number is printed on small blue flags and decals on walkways. To begin the audio tour call (206) 395-2311 and follow prompts from there.

Field Notes will be available through October 31.
