Sunset Hill

Just west of Ballard and twenty minutes from Downtown, Shilshole is best known for its boating opportunities, restaurants and waterfront views. The local hub of activity is Shilshole Bay Marina, the state’s second largest marina and home to 1,400 boats. The neighborhood’s population includes the 600 residents who live aboard boats at the marina, as well as those from the largely residential Sunset Hill neighborhood rising up from the bay. Area attractions include outstanding views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains, public fishing piers, waterfront promenade, and the popular Golden Gardens Park.
