A Morning Around Fremont

Start your picnic with an espresso at ETG (3512 Fremont Place N). Cross at the crosswalk just outside the door to 35th Street, turning right to spy the neon-adorned Army surplus missile at 35th and Evanston Avenue N. Turn left on Evanston and walk a block to PCC (600 N 34th), an organic market where you can pick up a delicious carry-out lunch.

Turn left on Evanston for an unobstructed view of the Ship Canal and Fremont Bridge. Turn right along the Canal path, walk about a block until you see the Dinosaur Topiaries at the beginning of the Ship Canal Park, a great place for your waterfront picnic. Catacorner is a historic brick streetcar barn that once housed Redhook , one of the first microbreweries in Seattle. Now, it’s a gourmet chocolate factory. Enjoy the walk down the Canal path, perhaps spotting sailboats or kayakers. When you turn back, exit the park at the topiaries and continue along 35th Street. If you visit during the Sunday Market, you’ll find blocks of vendors and lots of foot traffic. Continue three blocks to Fremont Avenue, by the Fremont Bridge and the sculpture, Waiting for the Interurban on a traffic island across the street. Turn left on Fremont Avenue, and get your bearings at the Center of the Universe signpost a half block later on another traffic island where Fremont Place begins. Stop in Simply Desserts (3421 Fremont Ave N) for the richest treats in town.

Burke-Gilman Trail Features

  1. Bridges

    The Burke-Gilman Trail passes under the Fremont Bridge and the Aurora Bridge. Both span the Ship Canal, although only the draw­bridge opens for boat traffic.

  5. The Rocket

    When an Army surplus store closed in Belltown, its outside adornment ended up in the hands of Fremont sculptors and painters who renovated the World War II-era missile and placed it atop this store.

    • 35th & Evanston Ave N

  6. Rope Swing

    Sunny days attract a crowd of rope swingers who get dunked near where Phinney Ave N meets the Canal.

  7. Old Trolley Barn

    This large brick warehouse used to house Seattle’s early mass transit vehicles, the trolleys. Since then, the building has been a microbrewery, an event rental facility, and a gourmet chocolate factory.

    • 34th & Phinney Ave N

  8. Indoor Sun Shoppe

    Huge plants decorate the front, and bright grow lights illuminate the interior of Seattle’s favorite neighborhood home and garden store.

  9. Dock Overlook

    The fenced-in area with benches and a roof sits right on the water, making it perfect for sunsets and bird and boat-watching. Distant views include Salmon Bay’s dry-dock industry and the Olympic Mountains beyond to the west.

  10. Gravel Plant

    Mounds of gravel, asphalt, and conveyor belts make stark contrast with the solemnity and serenity of the water and park-land nearby.

The Rocket’s lights used to blink as the engine belched smoke every 45 minutes. That mission was eventually aborted.
