Gobble Pac-Dots in Seattle’s PAC-MAN Park

Gobble Pac-Dots in Seattle’s PAC-MAN Park

For nearly four decades, Pac-Man and his ghostly rivals have been video game icons around the world. From arcades to restaurants, to convenience stores, to living rooms everywhere, Pac-Man is ubiquitous. Now, Pac-Man has a home of his own in Seattle’s Pac-Man Park.

Via Atlas Obscura, Pac-Man Park was created as a public art project to revitalize a section of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle, which has faced financial struggles. To that end, Seattle’s local government voted to turn a formerly empty road into a lively 2,600 square feet recreation of the classic Pac-Man game board that includes the four ghosts, Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde, as well as Power Pellets and Pac-Man himself. Pac-Man Park was opened earlier this year, and visitors can walk through the game board that they’ve played many times before. Essentially, it’s the world’s largest game of Pac-Man, and we love it!

The pavement really lends itself to the classic aesthetic of Pac-Man, and even the nearby tables were painted to feature Ms. Pac-Man and a few of the power-up items from the second game in the franchise. If you’re in Seattle and want a closer look at Pac-Man Park, you can find it at 110 Summit Ave E. For the rest of us, check out the SDOT Photos page on Flickr.
