Crouched under the Aurora Bridge is an 18-foot tall, two-ton sculpture of a troll clutching a VW Bus, and glaring at passersby. Created in 1990 by four Seattle-based sculptors, this quirky public art piece exemplifies the free spirit of the people living in the Fremont district. These funky natives dress their beloved troll up every Halloween to thank him for protecting them from the 1996 mudslide. On an average day, tourists and locals alike hang from his shaggy hair, and make a seat out of his hands and head. Only a three to four block walk from Fremont's business district, it is perhaps the best souvenir photo one can take.

No, this isn't the zoo, although the zoo is indeed smack in the middle of this park, which lives up to its name-Woodland Park Rose Garden with 188 acres of towering deciduous forest and rolling lawns. It also offers tennis courts, playfields and picnic areas on its east side near Green Lake, and shrubbery-shrouded meadows on its west side on Phinney Avenue North. In the center, by one of the zoo entrances, is the park's beloved rose garden. The high-walled space is crammed with dozens of different hybrids, tea roses and climbers.
