The Wallingford neighborhood is located in north central Seattle about four miles north of the downtown core (map). The U-District and University of Washington neighbor it to the east. The Wallingford Center contains many shops and restaurants (including the original Dick’s Drive-In, founded 1954). Wallingford is often defined by the sloping ridge that runs north from the edge of Lake Union to 45th Street, with the ridge line approximately following Wallingford Avenue. Generally the boundaries are considered as Aurora Avenue to the west, Interstate 5 to the east, Lake Union to the south, and 60th Street to the north. Wallingford is part of the Seattle School District.

Gas Works Park on Lake Union borders the Burke-Gilman Trail and provides panoramic views into Lake Union and the city of Seattle. Meridian Playground features a historic a fantastic shared community space called the Good Shepherd Center. Wallingford Playfield borders recently renovated Hamilton International Middle School and features views and a summer wading pool. To the north lies Woodland Park, which features athletic fields, a skate park, tennis courts, and connections to the Woodland Park Zoo and Green Lake.
