Cal Anderson Park

A large AIDS Memorial Pathway art installation provides a moment for quiet contemplation in this public park. 


Capitol Hill’s main park is a public sanctuary and community hub, complete with multiple promenade paths, a kids’ play area, a fountain, a reflecting pond, and athletic fields. Locals can often be seen playing on the oversized chessboards. One of the more recent additions to the park is the AIDS Memorial Pathway, a series of three art installations by Horatio Hung‑Yan Law. They can be experienced in daylight, but at night, LED lights sets them aglow.

Know Before You Go

The park is free and open to the public.
