It’s difficult to delineate the boundary between Ballard and Crown Hill. It is mainly defined by Crown Hill’s commercial center at the intersection of 15th NW and NW 85th where a variety of specialty shops, grocery stores, and ethnic eateries are surrounded by well tendered homes. Swanson’s, a 5 acre nursery located nearby is a “gardener’s paradise.” The Crown Hill community is very active in the upkeep of its neighborhood and has sponsored the conversion of several lots into neighborhood parks. House styles range from 1920’s Tudors to mid century moderns. New condos and townhomes, as well as apartments are also found here.
