The outgoing owners of Ballard’s newest city park at 70th St. and 9th Ave. are a holding a garage sale this weekend (they’re moving by the end of the month), so we decided to stop by to get a better look at the property. The property is larger than it looks when you combine all […]

Since My Ballard’s inception, we’ve been writing about the changes to our town and the development that’s challenging the old Scandinavian vibe that my great-grandparents fell in love with nearly 100 years ago.
