Lake Washington Ship Canal
Over 1.5 million visitors come annually to the Lake Washington Ship Canal to watch boats and migrating salmon, or stroll through the spectacular botanical garden. Approximately 65,000 vessels pass through the two navigation locks each year making the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks the busiest in the nation.. Underground windows offer visitors a rare, up close view of migrating salmon and steelhead passing through the fish ladder on their way to spawning grounds. Visitors enjoy year-round color that adorns the seven-acre botanical gardens containing over 500 species. The visitor center offers free guided tours, a theater program, and exhibits explaining the history of the Corps and project operation.
