Parking Squid

Parking Squid, perhaps a friend to those giant squid lurking in the depths of Puget Sound, was commission by the Seattle Department of Transportation in 2009 and installed in 2012. Parking Squid’s raised bike-wheel clutching tentacle beckons cyclists to lock their bikes to her while also creating an iconic moment for meeting and interaction.

You can currently find Parking Squid lurking in the Ballard neighborhood just east of the Ballard Locks.
