    Parking is tough due to the small narrow streets but worth the visit when under the bridge

    Not so awesome as most of people picture it, but it's a thing to see if you are near.

    I doubt I'll ever see a neighborhood sculpture of a troll under a bridge again. People are pretty good about taking turns with photo ops here. Plenty of parking.

    Legend has it, this troll eats children for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A little off the beaten path in quirky Fremont, it is definitely an interesting art piece worth seeing while visiting Seattle.

    Fun tourist spot... Just beware that the area smells... Like urine... But for a quick pic, is fun to see!

    If you head south from the troll on Troll Ave, at the corner of N 35th St on the left-hand side, you'll find the 3 Billy Goats Gruff.

    It is not as giant as I thought,and can be polished more regarding details.

    You know the troll that eats the billy goats? Well, he lives under the Fremont bridge. And he's pretty big.

    Pretty cool to check out if you have nothing better to do. Older kids who aren't scared will love to climb up onto the troll. Not much to it, really just an attraction to see to say you saw it.

    The VW bug in his hand is a reminder of what happens when you don't pay the toll...

    While the idea is very cool, the execution left me wanting more. If you plan on going to Fremont check it out, otherwise don't go out of your way. Negative points for the graffiti.

    Did you know? The idea of a troll living under a bridge, preying on those who cross it comes from an old Scandinavian folk tale, “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.” Read more

    Ever been under the north end of the Aurora Bridge? Check it out and say hi to the 18 ft, 13,000 lb Fremont Troll. (We think he’s crushing that car to show what he thinks about car ownership.)
