This park just opened on May 25 on the grounds of the West Campus of the Museum of Flight, behind the Aviation Pavilion. It is open to the public and does not require a Museum of Flight admission fee.
In addition to the park itself, there is a view of some aircraft in the Aviation Pavilion. The interesting architecture of the Aviation High School is nearby.
Parking is free. There are restrooms in the lobby of the Space Gallery. We could walk over to the Museum's cafe for lunch after sketching. Again, no entrance fee required in either case.
Park in back of the Simonyi Space Gallery, on the west side of the street, across from the "main museum". Do not drive to the east side of the Museum, near the flight line.

While the area is changing, there are still many older buildings as it is a designated historic district. In case of rain, there are several coffee houses and other spots from which to sketch. There is an historic cinema. There is a PCC market location in Columbia City. A couple blocks north on Rainier Ave. is the Columbia Branch Library (near the north side entrance to PCC) which is a Carnegie library and on the National Register of Historic Places.
There is street parking or a fairly inexpensive lot: Turn east on S. Ferdinant St (coming from the North on Rainier, that's a left turn). Parking lot half a block up on the right. It's $2 per hour and the machine takes cash or card. 3900 S Ferdinand, Seattle, WA
Alternatively, there is a Light Rail stop at Columbia City (4818 Martin Luther King Jr Way S., Seattle). It's a half mile walk to Rainier and our main sketching area.
Lunch: For those who can stay, we'll pick a spot among the many places on the main street.
