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.

This is actually a place many Ballard-ites take for granted, but it's really cool! It's a gorgeous, arboretum style park as well, with a salmon fish ladder this is packed with salmon in July and August. The locks are how boats go from the Lake Washington and Lake Union out to The Sound without…

“Feel like going for a hike without leaving the city? Discovery Park has a 3 mile loop trail through dense forests and it hugs the beach for epic beach combing too. We see bald eagles almost every time we go there.”
