Green Lake Opportunity
Oct 12, 2018
Green Lake is one of Seattle’s local gems. It is home to Seattle’s best park, which carries the same name as the neighborhood; Green Lake.
The park is a major attraction for Seattle locals. The lake has two swimming areas, a boat rental and grandstands for rowing races. In the summer the lake is filled with paddle boats, stand up and paddle boards, canoes, kayaks, and lots of swimmers. Beyond water activities the park has a 3 mile shared paved path for runners and walkers, which is extremely popular. The park also has baseball fields, tennis courts, a skate park, bmx jumps, BBQ areas, and much more.
The Green Lake neighborhood has several great restaurants, cafés, and stores, which mostly cater to the active neighborhood.
The neighborhood is mostly single family homes, but there are many apartments including the newly finished Green Lake village complex. Green Lake is a perfect place to live for singles who prioritize the activities the lake has to offer over downtown living. The neighborhood has plenty of restaurants but it doesn’t have much of a diverse night life. The University of Washington is nearby making Green Lake a good choice for students.
For families, Green Lake is amazing – it’s quiet, close to I-5, and near downtown. For kids the park had tons of activities, and the Woodland Park Zoo is 5 minutes away. Its only drawback is homes do not come on the market that often, however, here is one for sale now!
