Gas Works Park incorporates numerous pieces of the old plant. Some stand as ruins, while others have been reconditioned, painted, and incorporated into a children's "play barn" structure, constructed in part from what was the plant's exhauster-compressor building. A web site affiliated with the Seattle Times newspaper says, "Gas Works Park is easily the strangest park in Seattle and may rank among the strangest in the world. The park was for many years the exclusive site of a summer series of "Peace Concerts".
The park also has for many years hosted one of Seattle's two major Fourth of July fireworks events; init was the sole such event. The park originally constituted one end of the Burke-Gilman bicycle and foot trail, laid out along the abandoned right-of-way of the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railway. However, the trail has now been extended several kilometers northwest, past the Fremont neighborhood toward Ballard.
The Master Plan called for "cleaning and greening" the park through bio- phytoremediation. Although the presence of organic pollutants had been substantially reduced by the mids, the US Environmental Protection Agency and Washington State Department of Ecology required additional measures, including removing and capping wastes, and air sparging in the southeast portion of the site to try to remove benzene that was a theoretical source of pollutants reaching Lake Union via ground water.
There are no known areas of surface soil contamination remaining on the site today, although tar occasionally still oozes from some locations within the site and is isolated and removed. Despite its somewhat isolated location, the park has been the site of numerous political rallies. These included a seven-month continuous vigil under the name PeaceWorks Park, in opposition to the Gulf War.
The vigil began at a peace concert in August and continued until after the end of the shooting war. Among the people who participated in the vigil at one point or another were former congressman and future governor Mike Lowrythen-city-councilperson Sue Donaldson, s icon Timothy Learyand beat poet Allen Ginsberg.

The gas was later also used for cooking, refrigeration, and heating homes and water. It was also called city gas to distinguish it from natural gas. The gas was made from coal up to when the high cost of operating the old coke oven and coal-gas generating sets forced a change-over to oil.
A pair of oil-to-gas generators was built in and the old coal-gas facilities were disassembled. Intwo more oil gas generator pairs were constructed to keep up with demand for gas.

Park advocates led by Myrtle Edwards prevailed. RHA opened an on-site office to research and analyze the plant site. Richard Haag realized that the site contained the last gas works and a unique opportunity for preservation. The proposal centered on recycling the buildings, production structures, machinery, and even the grounds themselves.
