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.

It's Seattle, it's Summer, and there are plenty of...
Better places to jump in and cool off! Anyone who walks or runs the lake knows that there are constantly toxic algae blooms. What makes you think that if your dogs health is in jeopardy yours is not? If warmer water is your thing look to a plethora of Lake Washington beaches: Madison Park, Rainier Beach, Magnuson Park, or Matthews Beach. If you're a recent transplant, looking to put hair on your chest, or to be a true Seattleite head to the Puget Sound beaches: Golden Gardens, Alki Beach, or Discovery Park. For those who like their swimming experiences controlled check out the salt water pool at Lincoln Park or a number of indoor fresh water pools run by the city. Happy Summer!
