About Us:

Located in Ballard on Puget Sound, this popular park offers extraordinary views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. 

A recent project restored two wetlands, established a short loop trail, and restored the northern beach. Golden Gardens offers strolls along a rugged coastline, hikes through forest trails, sunbathing on sandy beaches, fishing from a pier and a boat launch. 

The park is also home to an off-leash area for dogs in the upper northern portion of the park. Dogs are not allowed on beaches, or children's play areas in Seattle parks, per the Seattle Municipal Code. 

Volunteers are an essential part of the North Beach restoration project at Golden Gardens. Volunteers educate the public, assist staff with restoration work and many park projects. Please consider sharing some of your time and talents as a friend of Golden Gardens. Please call (206) 615-0691 for more information.
