Not only does Green Lake rank as one of North Seattle’s best residential neighborhoods, it also has its own unique downtown hub and a whole host of great outdoor activities to choose from! With paddleboard and kayak rentals at the Green Lake Boathouse & Cafe, and a 2.8 mile paved trail for longboard, biking and jogging, you can work up a sweat AND make some awesome memories. There is a playground and a wading pool for little ones, large lawns for pickup soccer and ultimate frisbee games, and even a community pool! Golf a few rounds at the Green Lake Pitch & Putt, or take in a Seattle Public Theater performance at the Bathhouse Theater. Green Lake has all the amenities you could want for an active couple or family.


Green Lake is also surrounded by fun restaurants, bars  and other activities for families and singles. Often overlooked by tourists is the adorable village that locals call Tangletown. With delicious donuts, a fantastic local brewery and a gourmet hot dog restaurant all on the same block, it’s worth an afternoon visit for sure.
