Check out what’s new at City Hall Park

The weather looks great this week to enjoy lunch outside or a short walk to pick up some delicious barbeque. This spring and summer, you can get lunch from a food truck at City Hall Park on the south side of the King County Courthouse. Trucks will be there from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. several days a week, including LT’s Famous BBQ today, and Odin Star burgers and sandwiches Wednesday.

Haven’t been to City Hall Park lately? Check out the new colorful Adirondack chairs and music from the “Busker of the Day.” Depending on the day, a food truck will offer barbeque, cheesesteaks, burgers, sandwiches, or Native cuisine. Some offer vegetarian, vegan, paleo, and gluten-free options. For a complete schedule and menus, go to and enter “Pioneer Square” in the location tab.

King County is also working with Seattle Parks and Recreation to bring more games, activities, and even a few lunchtime concerts to City Hall Park this summer. We’ll bring you details of those events in Employee News.

The food truck effort is part of the Courthouse Vicinity Improvement effort – a partnership between King County, the City of Seattle, and community partners – to improve the safety and cleanliness around the Courthouse so that everyone is able to enjoy the park. So come out and enjoy the outdoors and support these local businesses!
