Seattle Center Park

Seattle Center Park

To start your journey, make your way to Seattle Center. Seattle Center is situated in the heart of Seattle and is easily accessible on foot, by private vehicle, and by public transit. Trainers can enter the Pokémon GO Fest 2022 experience via two entrances:

  • North: Mercer Street Entrance
  • South: Broad Street Entrance

Seattle Center is an arts, educational, tourism and entertainment center in Seattle, Washington, United States. Spanning an area of 74 acres (30 ha), it was originally built for the 1962 World’s Fair.

Its landmark feature is the 605 ft (184 m) tall Space Needle, which at the time of its completion was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. Seattle Center is located just north of Belltown in the Uptown neighborhood.

Built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the 605-foot-tall Space Needle quickly became an icon of the city that today is recognized far and wide. On the observation level, which you can reach via a 43-second elevator ride, see the doodle-on-a-napkin concept that led to the Space Needle design. Views from the top feature Elliott Bay, the Cascade Mountains, and even Mount Rainier.

The Monorail goes from Westlake Center to the Seattle Center so it is a quick ride back and forth. Using the Monorail is a nice change of pace from climbing the hills! The Space Needle and Chihuly Garden & Glass are “must sees.”
