Ballard Locks

Take a scenic stroll with your leashed pet through Ballard Locks, a pet-friendly public park in Seattle, WA. The long, narrow paved walkway in the park gives you the opportunity to watch boats pass through the locks or catch a glimpse of the salmon making their way up the specially-designed fish ladder and through the locks.

    The gardens are beautiful and fun to be able to watch the locks in action with your four-footed friend.

    Pleasant walk

    The locks are really nice for walks. Only downside is there are a lot of geese, which I reckon can be a problem for some dogs.
