Just north of downtown Seattle is Green Lake, a community built around a park much like New York’s Central Park district. At its heart, Green Lake’s gigantic water feature attracts swimmers, waders, and people-powered boats of all types, while circling the lake you will find joggers, skaters, and strollers on the wide path. Surrounding them are restaurants, taverns, resting benches and coffee shops. As you expand your circle, you will find playing fields along with over 300 acres of green space to enjoy, and frequent neighborhood events to encourage you to get outside. Whether it’s an historic property, midcentury gem or new-build condo, you’ll find your perfect spot in laidback Green Lake.
