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.

Now is the time! City Council is currently transitioning to District based elections.

Phinney Ridge Community Council will present a Candidates Forum for our new District 6 on Sat. June 6, 2-4 PM at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6532 Phinney Ave N., Lower Brick Building. The three contenders for the District 6 City Council seat will answer questions ranging from land use and transportation to affordable housing and public safety.

“The move to district elections represents one of the biggest political changes in Seattle in years,” says Ted Inkley, a board member with the Phinney Ridge Community Council, which is sponsoring the forum. “It’s important that District residents learn the views of candidates, and equally important that the candidates hear residents’ concerns, especially critical given the important decisions facing City Hall during this time of rapid growth and change in Seattle.”

Incumbent Councilmember Mike O’Brien and challengers Catherine Weatbrook and Jon Lisbin will answer questions formulated with input from community organizations from around the district. Audience members will also have the opportunity to submit questions. Click here for a printable flier on the Candidates Forum that can be distributed.
