Pier 58 is closed after some substantial shifting occurred

First, it was the Viaduct, then the West Seattle Bridge, and now it’s Seattle’s Waterfront Park Pier 58. And folks, we can’t say we’re surprised it’s happening this year! Sadly, Pier 58 looks like it has experienced some substantial shifting.

And that means it’s not safe. So if you were one of the many fans of this excellent view of the sound and Olympics, it’s going to be a while before it’s open again. In fact, a several inch gap between the pier and land now exists which is pretty scary.

After a water line failure was noticed at the pier, Seattle Parks and Rec gated off the area. So that means none of us will be going for an unintentional swim. But we’ll keep our fingers crossed that this unique park can come back in the near future.
