Hiram Chittenden Locks

Sunday, November 15, 2015 | All Events (see all) 3015 NW 54th Street
Seattle, 98107

This event is SOLD OUT.

Date is tentative. We will notify registrants in September of the confirmed date.

This is an encore of a sold out tour we did in November 2014. You’ve taken your out-of-town friends here on beautiful summer days to watch the locks in operation, admire the hundreds of large yachts and small sail and motor launches come through, and enjoy the English gardens. But once a year, in November, when the Corps drains the main locks, you will see the hidden operational side of the locks, the enormity of the gates themselves, the saltwater inlets, the sump pumps and feeder lines. Overcoats and umbrellas may be needed, but it will be worth it.
