The body of a man was discovered in a Ballard park Saturday morning.

The dead man was a transient who frequented Ballard Commons Park,  said SPD spokeswoman Renee Witt.

He apparently died of natural causes, she said. The King County Medical Examiner’s office is investigating.

The park, noted for its skateboard bowl,  is located at 5701 22nd Avenue Northwest.
