Green Lake, just a stone’s throw north of Wallingford, is a thriving urban neighborhood nestled amongst beautiful tree-lined streets and epic views of the Mt. Rainier. Aptly named for the freshwater lake it surrounds, Greenlake borders the neighborhoods of Phinney Ridge on the west, Maple Leaf on the east, Northgate to the north, and Fremont and Wallingford to the south, the area is within walking distance of many other Seattle neighborhoods. The neighborhood is a short drive or bus ride from downtown and there is plentiful on-street parking. The area itself is small and rated high on the walkability scale. The main attraction of this neighborhood is Green Lake itself. A 2.8 mile walking path follows the perimeter of the lake, and the neighborhood is known for the abundance of walkers, joggers and bicyclists constantly circling the water. There is a very large public park that surrounds Green Lake, complete with tennis courts, playgrounds, soccer fields and a children’s wading pool. On a nice day hundreds of people fill every square inch of grass along the park. But, even if the skies are cloudy and grey, you’ll be sure to find a few brave souls reading on a blanket or enjoying cup of coffee on a bench, somewhere in the park. A variety of homes are situated in the Green Lake neighborhood. Early Settlers came to the area in 1855, and some of the older structures, most notably the Green Lake Library, still retain their original style. Walking along the shores, you’ll see many large, older homes that have been remodeled, as well as newer condos and apartments, usually located above the businesses that surround the lake.
