The Green Lake Neighborhood
Green Lake is bounded by Wallingford on the south, Greenwood/Phinney Ridge
to our west, Licton Springs/Maple Leaf to our north, and Roosevelt to
the east. The neighborhood is mostly single family units with apartments
and multi-family housing in the residential urban village area at the
east side of the neighborhood. The park/lake has no real entrance as you
can enter anywhere around the park. There are four Welcome to Green Lake
signs on the major entrances to the lake.
The business district is located on the east side of the park. There are
also businesses in the Aurora area, in the Meridian area, and near the
wading pool. There are sports orientated shops like Gregg's Greenlake
Cycle, Road Runner Sports and Super Jock & Jill. You can shop for
food at the Puget Consumer's Coop. You can work out at American Athlete,
you can develop film at Pacific Color Inc., book a trip at Green Lake
Travel, or buy an ice cream at 31 Flavors on East Green Lake Way N or
Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, located next to Zeek's pizza across from
the wading pool at Greenlake. We have doctors, therapists, lawyers, and
a really good vet. We have pharmacies, dry cleaners, and a nice neighborhood
Bank (Key Bank). We have lots of real estate agents, including GLCC Chair
Michael Cornell, who would like to sell you a house, or help you sell
yours! Our businesses reflect the wonderful diversity that is Green Lake.
