Green Lake


, ,

Green Lake is a highly desirable neighborhood in north central Seattle (map) surrounding a popular small and easily accessible lake. Probably most known for its well-utilized 2.8-mile path around the perimeter for runners, bikers, skaters and walkers, it also has athletic fields for team sports and is home to the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department’s Green Lake Small Craft Center (GLSCC). While the park stays busy year-round, on any Seattle summer day, you’ll find residents flocking to visit Green Lake Park for paddle boating, picnics and swimming.

There is an eclectic mix of housing styles, and like many Seattle neighborhoods, Green Lake has undergone significant redevelopment and many houses have been completely remodeled and enlarged. Green Lake benefits from easy access to Downtown via both Interstate 5 and Aurora Avenue N. Its boundaries are I-5 to the east; N 85th Street to the north; Aurora Avenue N to the west; and Woodland Park to the south. The area north of 50th street is considered part of the distinct neighborhood of Tangletown. It has a hip culture with many trendy restaurants and entertainment venues.
