Ballard Locks

On the map below, note maximum wedding party size is as follows:
Site A up to 10; Sites B, C & D up to 50.  Large parties are discouraged and any group over 50, including photography only, must apply for a ADDITIONAL SPECIAL USE PERMIT.

The Locks has small group (up to 50 persons) wedding sites that are a viable alternative to the City of Seattle Park System which charges $300-$750 (non-refundable) and up for similar wedding venues.  Instead of a fixed rate, we do accept donations which go towards much needed visitor related improvements, including the Carl S. English Garden where weddings are held.  Suggested donations (refundable, if plans change) are $10/person and range from a minimum of $100 to a maximum of $250.

Note that Commodore Park located on South Side of the Locks is operated by the City of Seattle.

Weddings or outdoor events at Commodore Park must be scheduled through the Seattle Parks District.
