Point 6: Queen Anne Boulevard

Olmsted recognized Queen Anne Hill's assets as he began laying out Seattle's park and boulevard system in 1903. He and later planners proposed a scenic boulevard to ring its summit, but only the western portion was realized. Queen Anne Boulevard is not the name of a street; rather, it was the name of the drive designed by the Olmsteds. It consists of McGraw Street, 10th Avenue W, and other streets.
