Greenlake Neighborhood in Seattle Virtual Tour |
Certified Residential Specialist


Seattle’s Green Lake isn’t just a lake, it isn’t just a park, it’s a whole neighborhood, and an extremely popular one!  Central Park = New York City, and Green Lake Park = Seattle.   Albeit a bit smaller than the famed Manhattan icon, Green Lake Park does share the same design legacy - the famous Olmsted landscape designers. A refreshing expanse of water and green space in the middle of the city, the park is a natural preserve for hundreds of trees and plants, not to mention ducks, herons, turtles, bald eagles and many other Northwest critters.

Green Lake without a doubt is one of Seattle’s most beloved parks.  There is something here for everyone.  It’s the perfect place to bring a date – or to find a date!  The flat, recently re-constructed path circles 2.8 miles around the lake,  where you will encounter all manner of runners, walkers, cute dogs, strollers, skaters, and one, two or three wheeled cyclists.  Did I mention CUTE DOGS?  Who's a good boy?  That's a good boy!  Along the way you will pass a theater, kid’s playground, wading pool, swimming beach, community center with pool, basketball and tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields, and even a small golf course! 

Greenlake is a hub of activity for Seattle’s fitness enthusiasts, with local establishments such as Gregg’s Greenlake Cycle, Super Jock n’ Jill, Northwest Crossfit, Road Runner Sports, and Title Nine serving the fitness community.  After that workout, relax and unwind at one of the many restaurants, pubs and coffee shops clustered conveniently around the north end of the lake.  Or, grab a book at the historic Greenlake Library, designated and preserved as a Seattle landmark, and settle in with a Starbucks Frappuccino on a bench or grassy lawn and just enjoy the people watching.

The architectural styles of the Greenlake neighborhood echo that of the park itself – there is something for everyone.  Grand brick Tudors, classic Craftsman bungalows, complete with rocking chair front porches, turn of the century Victorians, cozy cottages, sleek and modern new construction, and low maintenance urban townhomes round out the selection.  

I love Seattle's Greenlake neighborhood and I know you will too.  If you are ready to begin your real estate experience, contact me and I look forward to hearing from you!
