Golden Gardens Park is located in Ballard on the Puget Sound. While at Golden Gardens you get views of the Olympic Mountains, Puget Sound, sail boats, fishing boats and more.
Golden Gardens offers a sandy beach to lie out, play volleyball or other beach games, or just take a walk along the water. The northern part of the beach is an off-leash area to let the dogs roam free. Hikes are also available through the forest trails. The sunset at the park is very worthwhile and there are also places to have a bonfire at night to eat, hang out and watch the sunset.
