Welcome to Beautiful Green Lake

The Green Lake neighborhood is a great place to work, play, visit, and live. Green Lake businesses are thriving and popular Green Lake restaurants serve delectable food that is lauded by food editors and customers alike. Green Lake homes are in high demand. and Green Lake Park is possibly the most popular park in the State of Washington.

Every day people from all parts of the city and county come to enjoy the lake, the path, and the many activities available year-round. Our neighborhood schools serve students from throughout the city and our library is one of the busiest (indicating that it serves as a regional resource as much as a neighborhood library) in the city. The old West Green Lake Beach bathhouse now houses the Seattle Public Theater, an exciting resource for quality entertainment and community participation.

The Green Lake Community Council

The Green Lake Community Council (GLCC) is an organization dedicated to making Green Lake an even a better place for those of us who live here, who work here and who visit here, through our involvement, advocacy, sharing, and caring. That is our vision. See About Us for our mission statement and current activities.

Friends of Green Lake

With the overwhelming popularity of our lake, many people are concerned about maintaining the beauty and viability of the lake for future generations. The Friends of Green Lake, which started out as a part of the Community Council, are addressing the issues of algae, wildlife habitat, and growth of plants like milfoil. See the Friends of Green Lake home page for for more information about the Friends of Green Lake activities.
