Ballard Locks, Seattle: 24 reviews and 54 photos


If the Salmon are spawning I think this is a cool activity. You can go "underground" and watch the salmon as they attempt to swim through the locks. Additionally, the locks provide an interesting glimpse into how Seattle has altered its natural environment being squeezed between salt and fresh water.
