Learn more about Ballard

Ballard is one of Seattle’s oldest neighborhoods. Trendy cafes, neighborhood pubs and unique shops have made Ballard a favorite destination for locals and visitors alike.  Visitors can find a wide range of ethnic restaurants in Ballard, from popular Thai cuisine to pubs to upscale dining.

The community of Ballard is often assoicated with the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks,  and often nicknamed the Ballard Locks, provides a link for boats between the salt water of Puget Sound and the fresh water of the Ship Canal.  Tourists and locals enjoy watching the parade of sailboats, motorboats, tugs, barges and yachts passing through, as the locks’ water levels are adjusted to allow their safe passage.

Another popular spot is the fish ladder, built to allow salmon to pass between fresh and salt water, and to navigate the locks. Glass panels below the water line make it possible to watch the fish as they swim through the ladder.

The community of Ballard is also known for its Golden Garden Park, with its panoramic views of the Olympic Mountains, sandy beaches and winding forest trails. The park includes an off-leash dog park, fishing pier and boat launch.
