What we're about

We're the Downtown Seattle Association and we want to make the Downtown a better place for all. We have taken over the management of Westlake Park and Occidental Square. Here you'll find daily events and activities for all people, no matter your background.

We host hundreds of events a year, all free to the public. From major concerts to small arts and craft projects. We support local musicians and host live music in both parks several days a week. From giant chess boards to ping pong you can find what you're looking for in either of our parks all year round.

Ask one of our friendly Park Ambassadors for a particular game and they'll most likely have it for you. We have a large variety of activities for your family to enjoy.

Stop by during the lunch hour and visit one of our food trucks, different trucks arrive daily. Here you'll find a variety of foods and exotic tastes.

Have a specific request? Want to see a concert, game or event in the park? Leave your comments below and we'll put them into action.
