I gave my son a list of all the outdoor sculptures and we went to each one covering all over Seattle. It was a lot of fun finding each one.

I love this community! We spent a half of a day visiting the nice unusual shops and enjoying the beautiful neighborhood. Fremont has a lot of quirky thing to see plus a great chocolate factory.

Just simply wandering about would greet you with a strange art installation on a random house, a troll under a bridge, sculptures on the street and cool lake views. We also stopped at a local brewery to sample the local delights. The locals strike me as friendly & interesting characters who seem proud of their community. We wished we'd had... More

The troll is an amazing work of art that is just plain fun. The huge Lenin statue has historical significance and is right at home in this quirky, unique community. I was sad that the Teriyaki places werfe all closed on Sunday!

The Fremont Troll shows how public art can be fun, transforming and mysterious at once, and more. This is more than another "must see"--it's a must play, climb, contemplate or whatever.

Lots of fun places to eat, brew pubs, the Fremont sculpture at the bridge, the troll under Aurora ave. This is a neighborhood with personality.

This is a cool attraction to see but I would not go out of my way to see it. It is located under a bridge on a steep road where only parallel parking is available, there are also always kids climbing all over this. You can see it from the road without getting out of the car too. It was... More
