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.

King County Metro is beginning their second phase of outreach on their Long-Range Plan and has teamed with Sound Transit to host a series of Joint Open Houses to give residents an opportunity to help shape the Metro Transit system of the future. They have also updated their website with new information and created a new online survey to collect input from the public.

Metro is asking the public to review projections about how communities in King County will grow over the next 25 years and tell us what types of transit service they think will get them where they want to go.

As Metro looks 25 years down the road to ensure we have the right mix of transit services and connections, Sound Transit is shaping a ballot measure for Sound Transit 3.

The final plan will be taken to the public for another round of input in early 2016 and then transmitted to the King County Council in mid-2016.

June Open Houses:

Tues, June 16 5:30p.m.-7:30 p.m. Union Station, 401 S Jackson St., Seattle
Tues, June 23 5:30p.m. -7:30 p.m. Redmond Marriot, 7401 164th Ave. NE., Redmond
Thurs, June 25 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Union Station, 401 S Jackson St., Seattle
Thurs, June 25 5:30-7:30 p.m. King County Aquatic Center, 650 SW Campus Dr., Federal Way
