Fremont Canal Park is a quiet linear park along the north side of the Lake Washington Ship Canal, located from approximately Phinney Ave N to 3rd Ave NW. It is adjacent to the Burke Gilman Trail, and features a pedestrian trail and benches to sit on and gaze at the water. It also includes an ADA accessible viewing platform and shelter at the water's edge at 2nd Ave NW and NW Canal St. The park provides a community gathering space, notably for the annual Fremont Fair, which is celebrated in June and draws more than 100,000 participants.

Acreage: 0.69


The park was planned and constructed in 1979-1981 as a cooperative effort between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Seattle Parks and Recreation. It is on property leased from the Corps. The shelter includes a 1981 mural by Anita Fisk and Paul Lewing.
