Cool to see how the locks work, especially for kids. Worth a visit if you’re planning to be nearby. Free.
A unique Seattle experience—watching boats transfer between the Sound and the ship canal. Plus you can often catch sights of seals and migrating fish.
Second largest locks in the world. Great place to go see the boat traffic and how they move from and to Puget sound and Lake Union.
A boat lock system with an underwater view of a fish ladder. A hot spot for mating blue herons and on the way to the beach at Golden Gardens.
Beautiful park grounds. Watch the boats come in and out from fresh to salt water. Go view the salmon ladder. Bring a picnic and enjoy a great afternoon.
Watch the salmon jump and the boats navigate the ship canal at this feat of engineering.
Visit during Summer and on weekends. It’s free. The locks will have boats line up and water level will go down and up like an elevator for boats.
Watch the salmon climb the ladder. Watch the boats go from fresh water out to the sound. It’s amazing and one of the oldest parts of Seattle.
Great visit for a first-time visitors. During certain times of the year, you can see salmons migrating via artificial fish ladder.

“Ever since the Aurora Bridge was erected in 1932 there have been reports of troll sightings underneath. Now we can say for sure that a troll has taken up residence on the north end of the Aurora Bridge. Fremont’s neighborhood trolls have come a long way from the terrifying Trolls of legend. They have, in fact, become quite civilized, fun loving local celebrities. Trolls love to cavort in parades and share an endless passion for dance and any kind of festivities. They are not interested in eating people anymore but have been known to take entire cars apart looking for shiny bits inside. So, a word of caution; it’s best to hide any car parts you might have about your person and be sure to watch your vehicles when visiting the Fremont Troll. HISTORY: The Troll Monument In 1989, the city asked the Fremont Arts Council to launched an art competition to rehabilitate the area under the bridge, which was becoming a dumping ground and haven for drug dealers. Later that year a team led by sculptor Steve Badanes won the competition and was inspired by the folktale Billy Goat’s Gruff. It is made from rebar steel, wire and 2 tons of messy ferroconcrete, 18 ft tall with a shiny metal eye and crushing a Volkswagen Beetle in his left hand (which was a time capsule for Elvis Memorabilia for a while until vandalized).”
