Each year, Ballardites come out for a number of Polar Bear Plunges that take place in the frigid winter waters of Puget Sound at Golden Gardens Beach Park and Ballard Elks on the waterfront.

Local Nonprofits.  They need you.  We need them.

Great neighborhoods are strengthened by active community organizations like the ones listed below.  These groups welcome newcomers and provide opportunities to get involved, to give back, to learn, and to create new relationships.  We are fortunate to have them in this time of need.

Please volunteer, donate, sponsor, or become a member.  Thank you!
