Our Ballard
Summer is in full swing and we are not slowing down, except for a vacation or two. The Ballard Alliance produced a variety of Fitness classes in the Park earlier this summer as a part of our park programming efforts at Ballard Commons Park. Thanks to everyone who took advantage of these free classes and brought their positive activity to the park. These classes were made possible by our generous instructors who donated their time to provide some awesome workouts. Big thank yous to Fit36 Ballard, We Yoga Co. and Ballard Health Club for sharing their yoga, circuit training and Zumba classes with the Ballard community! 

Our friends over at Ballard Health Club will continue to provide the Ballard community with free yoga in the park classes at Ballard Commons Park every Saturday morning at 10 a.m. until September 15th. 

Our Movies in the Park series kicks off tonight with a showing of THE GOONIES. Bring your family and/or friends to the park for an outdoor movie. The weather will be perfect tomorrow evening to enjoy this cinematic classic and Sweet Mickey's will be sharing treats with moviegoers. Please arrive early to reserve a spot in the grass and try a delicious snack from the Fork & Fin food truck. Movies will start at 8:15 p.m. If you are not able to make it to this movie night we have more in store for you.
