|FIELD TRIP: Washington State Convention Center & Freeway Park. We'll walk to the nearby Convention Center to peruse the current exhibition of an impressive rotating collection of art owned by the State of Washington as well as permanent installations from world-class artists.|
Stepping right outside, we'll enter Freeway Park, one of Seattle's favorite green spaces where residents, workers, and visitors come together. The park design is meant to encourage thought, reflection, and stimulate the senses, incorporating nature into the built environment with an abundance of trees, flowers, grassy lawns, and benches to enjoy diverse views of the cityscape.
Our return walk to the hotel takes us by a delightful, newly-installed creation by glass and metal artist Ginny Ruffner, "The Urban Garden."
PROGRAM CONCLUDES: The program concludes with our return at approximately 10:30am. Hotel check-out time is noon.
We trust you have enjoyed this new City Highlights Weekend "Flex" program and will join us for other rewarding Road Scholar learning adventures in the future. Best wishes for all your journeys!
