Swim at Green Lake

Green Lake - Search Nearby - Added by Sarah Matthews

Great for swimming, kayaking, SUP, boating and catching some rays. Pet friendly.

Green Lake is one of Seattle’s most beloved parks. Its expanse of water and green space in the center of a dense urban neighborhood draws thousands of people daily from all over the city. The park serves as a natural preserve for hundreds of species of trees and plants, as well as numerous birds and waterfowl. The newly reconstructed 2.8-mile path around the lake provides a perfect recreational spot for runners, bikers, skaters and walkers. Many others use the athletic fields or visit the park for boating, picnics and swimming.

Don’t swim in green lake unless you want to barf

Literally every dog that drinks from that lake will vomit. It’s gross water. Don’t get in.

A real gem!!

I have visited and swam/paddle boarded here for years. The great Canadian Geese invasion a few years ago made for some algae blooms that weren't good for swimming (and left an erroneous long term impression) but for years now the lake has been in great shape and the beaches are much used. All the beaches in the county are monitored and can be checked for water quality so anyone can check before taking a dip. Some of the less healthy beaches might. be a surprise.
