Green Lake is a neighborhood in north central Seattle which surrounds a lovely lake after which it is named. The lake and adjacent park are the centerpieces of the community and create recreation hub for area residents. Complete with a three-mile jogging path, paddle boat dock, tennis courts, volleyball courts, playgrounds, and even a mini golf course, Green Lake is a vibrant and active community. A commercial area with shops and restaurants borders the lake, and the stately Green Lake branch of the Seattle public library stands out as a historic landmark. From the lakeside Craftsman homes and bungalows to the modern condos and townhomes, Green Lake has housing to fit the needs of everyone.
