Green Lake is one of Seattle’s most beloved parks. The newly reconstructed 2.8-mile path around the lake provides a perfect recreational spot for runners, bikers, skaters and walkers. Also, make sure to visit theGreen Lake Small Craft Center.

Green Lake Park is located in north central Seattle. The large lake is surrounded by a 2.8 mile path for runners, bikers, skaters and walkers. Swimming, fishing and boating are all popular lake activities, with a Small Craft Center offering classes in rowing, sailing, kayaking and canoeing, and a private company offering rentals for paddle boats, row boats and canoes. Milfoil and swimmers itch (caused by parasites from waterfowl) are still a consideration for those who swim in the lake.

Come to Green Lake on a sunny spring afternoon and you’ll see a solid ring of humanity circling the lake by foot, bicycle, stroller, skates and whatever else can be devised. This is one of Seattle’s most-visited and most-loved parks.
