A new community garden is located at the Center of the Universe!
Since 2015, Fremont now has a P-Patch community garden and new park space. The Troll’s Knoll P-Patch is situated on the northwest side of the Aurora Avenue Bridge, flanking the west side of the Fremont Troll. Currently, it has 31 garden plots, including three Giving Garden plots.
This garden exists thanks to the 2008 Parks Levy Opportunity Fund and was developed with the support of volunteers, a City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Neighborhood Matching Fund grant, Skanska, and Perkins + Will.
Gardeners are required to contribute eight hours of service to the garden each year. Log your hours here.
