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.
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.
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.
