One of Seattle’s oldest neighborhoods, Belltown is also one of its most dynamic. A transformation has occurred as young professionals, middle-aged empty nesters and others have relocated here. With approximately 11,000 residents, Belltown has the largest residential base of any downtown neighborhood. No longer a gritty, inner-city neighborhood, Belltown is an urban oasis-complete with P-Patch garden,historic Cottage Park, Regrade Dog Park, the spectacular Olympic Sculpture Park, a community center with programs and special events, and the Bell Street Park featuring a fountain, play area, and performance space. Belltown’s “in-city” location, amenity-laden apartments, upscale condos, trendy shops and sophisticated new eateries, along with popular musical venues like Dimitrious’ Jazz Alley, and the Crocodile Cafe that showcase local and national talent, exemplify urban living at its best.
