The Locks & Ship Canal were built over 100 years ago as a Commercial Navigation Route to Develop the City of Seattle. The Locks still contribute over $1.2 Billion/yr. to the Seattle economy and are the Nation's busiest. However, no fees are charged and funding comes from the Federal Government (not Seattle).

Botanical Garden
On the grounds of the Locks are the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Gardens. When the Locks were being constructed, the Corps of Engineers hired botanist Carl English to transform the gravel dug up from the Locks' construction into an English style botanical garden. For 43 years, Mr. English labored on the seven acres of the Gardens. The results of his work are one of Seattle's beauty secrets.
