  WHAT’S LIVING IN South Park LIKE?

South Park, located in south Seattle, is a mash-up of industrial business, retail business, and residences. Deemed the city's most diverse neighborhood, this is a working- and middle-class area with people from every ethnic and racial background, and it still retains the grit of its industrial past. As the rest of Seattle real estate has skyrocketed, South Park has also experienced gentrification. Artists and architects have moved in and fixed up old houses; the city has provided more funds to improve infrastructure and social services.

Recreation-wise there are a number of parks, including a skate park, boxing clubs, and a yacht club (on the river that forms its eastern border). If you're looking for more sedentary activities, there are plenty of breweries for beer lovers here (Lowercase Brewing, Odin Brewing, Tin Dog Brewing, and Burdick Brewery). And for winos there are tasting rooms for a number of local wineries as well.

The downside of affordable homes and lots of things to do? As in neighboring Georgetown you'll have to contend with air pollution from the nearby King County International Airport.

South Park is bordered on the north by the Industrial District, on the east by Georgetown and the King County International Airpot, on the south by White Center, and on the west by Highland Park.
