Fun park with water

This park is great to walk or run along the Green Lake waterway with or without your dog. You can also enjoy a picnic or just sit and people watch and feel completely safe.

The park offers a loop good for 3 miles run along the lake shores. It is kid friendly and is located in the popular area of Seattle. Has restaurants and bars and coffee shops very close by. Parking can be a bit tight during summers and peak time

Green lake is always awesome. A serene walk to find your zen and a great place to people watch and see lots of cute dogs. Be careful with parking as there's always the risk of having your car broken into if you park in a seedy area. Overall a great public resource for everyone to enjoy. Lots of great restaurants/coffee... More

Even on Thanksgiving Day the hardy Seattle Folk are out running, walking and enjoying nature in the rain. Despite the conditions, everyone was warm and friendly. Good place for kids to get some energy out. Once around is about 3 miles.

I walk here often. Parking is easy and free. The walk is flat and so many people of all ages are out having a good time. I love seeing the eagle perched on it's favorite tree.

There are the north and south points offer public bathrooms, there's a children's playground, plenty of green grass for picnicking, and lots of restaurants just a few yards off the path. On a sunny day, the path is full of people and dogs. It's an easy,... More

Greenlake is not to be missed if you are visiting Seatttle or live in the area. The 2.8 mile loop around the lake is delightful and perfectly located in the heart of the city. Grab a coffee and start walking, you won't be disappointed rain or shine!

Great almost 3 mile walk around a local lake. Many joggers, walkers and unfortunately bike riders . It's nice because you end where you start . Some residential areas . Bathroom spots. And during summer a couple of swimming places
