Great to finally see this iconic Fremont public piece of art. It’s quick and shouldn’t be missed if you’re in the area.

It is an interesting piece to walk by. There are history and stories tied to the Troll. Our office is down the street. Almost every day it is packed with tourists. If you are in Freemont and it is on the way. Go ahead.

Bigger and badder than you think- its a wonderful piece- visited by so many people-but hidden so you need to know where you are going- it helps that there is a street that deadends right into it, I firmly believe you can't understand the Seattle...More

My niece wanted to do something touristy with us, so she took us to see the Fremont troll. I wasn’t sure how it would be but once we got there it was cool. It wasn’t what I was expecting and I am glad she took...More
