The Chief Seattle Statue at Tilikum Place at Fifth Avenue and Cedar Street. The main attraction of this small square is a life-size statue of Chief Seattle, for whom the city was named. Wrapped in a stained copper shawl, the chief stands on a pedestal with one arm raised in symbolic greeting to the first white settlers who landed at Alki Point in 1851. Bear heads at the base of the pedestal spout streams of water into a pool. Tilikum Place itself (the name meaning "welcome" or "greetings" in Chinook jargon) is located at the juncture of the original land claims of Denny, Boren, and Bell. The statue, sculpted by James When from the only existing photo of the chief, was unveiled on Founders' Day, 13 November 1912, by Chief Seattle's great-great-granddaughter.
The Belltown P-Patch and Cottage Park at Vine Street and Elliott Avenue.
The Seattle Art Mueseum's Olympic Sculpture Park anchors the Northwest corner of Belltown at Western Avenue.
