Kinnear Park is a 14.1-acre (57,000 m2) park on the southwest slope of Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, Washington, USA located between W. Olympic Place on the northeast, W. Mercer Place and Elliott Avenue W. on the southwest, the 9th Avenue W. right of way on the west, and the 6th Avenue W. right of way on the east. It is two-tiered, with a lawn and open space atop the cliff, and a wooded area below.
