“Quirky Fremont”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This is what Fremont used to be all about. Quirky art, surprises around every corner. This used to be a little known treasure, but now there are signs to it. Go, it is fun.

“Pretty Cool”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Saw this on our way to Kerry Park. It is basically a giant troll under a bridge. It is a cool sight to see in Fremont and am glad I saw it! There are however a few other people who also come a see it and it can get rather crowded there and it is sometimes hard to get a photo with it. You have to be patient to get on the troll and get a picture!

“Quick stop for interesting pic”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

This was what I expected, just a quick stop for the photo op. My kids liked it as it was unique. The only drawback was the homeless campers behind the troll seem to be using the statue to urinate on.

“Fun stop for out of town guests”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

The only life size troll most of us will ever see. Not just fun for kids but a great example of public art. My favorite part is the VW Bug under the troll's hand. A great stop as you explore the quirky Fremont neighborhood better known as the center of the universe.

“Iconic landmark”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is a must-visit photo stop when touring off-beat Seattle, along with the nearby off-beat Fremont neighborhood. Don't bother asking "why?" or "how?". Some things are just meant to be enjoyed.
