The City of Seattle closed its downtown Waterfront Park last week after discovering Pier 58 had shifted, which left a gap of "several inches" between the pier and land.

The pier will not reopen until it is replaced, according to Superintendent of Parks and Recreation Jesús Aguirre.

The closure came after Seattle Parks and Recreation received a report about a waterline failure and possible shifting at Pier 58 between the Seattle Aquarium and Great Wheel on Aug. 5.fter having the pier appraised, the city said structural engineers found the "shift was substantial," and the pier had shifted several inches, the city said.

Waterfront Park between University and Pike streets was closed due to the findings.
