Walk along the Fremont Canal Park
Fremont is a bustling neighborhood but it’s not hard to find some nature and solitude near our Fremont pot shop. The Fremont Canal Park is perfect for taking a relaxing stroll and reaching a meditative state in the middle of a busy city.
Located near Google and adjacent to the Burke Gilman Trail, the park’s trail follows the tranquil water of the Lake Washington Ship Canal. It’s perfect for walking and observing the many industries and lifestyles that exist in Seattle.
There aren’t a ton of spaces to lay down and stretch out, but there are plenty of opportunities to sit down and watch the boats and birds go by. You can pack a picnic or a deck of cards for more entertainment seated at a bench or by the water on the rocks.
This park is mostly about views and walkability, so if you’re looking for a peaceful stroll without a lot of distractions, Fremont Canal Park is a good choice.
Find the troll
One of the most popular attractions in Fremont is the giant creature that lurks below the bridge. The troll, an 18-foot tall stone sculpture, has become a favorite for both tourists and locals in the area.
Whether you’re in town for the weekend or looking for something fun to do on your day off, playing tourist is a wonderful stoned activity. If you’re already exploring the area, there’s no reason to not pay a visit to the troll. Just be prepared to wait a bit during busy times.
The best part about the troll is that you don’t have to just admire (or fear) it from a distance. It’s perfect for posing. You can interact with the troll, maybe even boop its nose, as long as you remain respectful.
Explore Gasworks Park
If you’re looking for a walk with great views of the city and a non-traditional landscape, Gasworks Park is the place for you. Located down the street from Fremont Brewing Company, this 19-acre park offers stunning views from all directions.
The first thing to notice when you enter Gasworks Park is the former gasification plant used by the Seattle Gas Light Company. The plant was used for 50 years by the city between the early and mid-1900s. It was later bought by the city and transformed into a park. Today, the park offers stunning views and plenty of space to walk around, fly a kite, or even sit down and have a picnic with friends.
Take a walk through the rolling hills to find great views across the water. When you reach the top, you may find the sundial that was gifted to the city from an unknown donor alongside panoramic views of the Seattle skyline.
