Greenlake is situated north of Queen Anne and Wallingford. Highway 99 (or Aurora) splits Greenlake in half and then it borders on the Ravenna/University neighborhoods to the east. The actual lake itself is just to the east of Highway 99.
Greenlake is one of Seattle's most popular communities due in large part to its namesake park. With its sparkling water, walking paths, athletic facilities and wide-open green space, the park draws many visitors daily from all over the city. Park activities include soccer, tennis, basketball, baseball, golf, running, skating, fishing, water sports and the always popular "dog and baby walk" around the three mile trail that circles Greenlake. The park not only provides plenty of activities, it is also home to a wide variety of trees, plants, songbirds, bats, waterfowl, and other wildlife with secluded spots to quietly observe and enjoy.
Green Lake Homes
Surrounding all the lush greenery of the lake are some of Green Lake's fantastic homes. The turn-of-the-century homes are primarily three and four bedroom vintage Craftsman and smaller Tudors. Newer single-family homes, apartments and condos have been built in recent years and can be found in varying styles and all sizes. In all, Greenlake's neighborhood is actually fairly small with only about 4,000 households.
