Green Lake is a Seattle neighborhood surrounding a lake of the same name on the northern and eastern sides. The downtown district of the neighborhood borders the Lake. Although there are no waterfront homes because of the surrounding park and trail, many enjoy views of the lake from their residences. Green Lake is a popular Seattle destination, where the outdoors becomes a social venue for sporting events, roller blading, biking or running around the lake, shops and restaurants. Easy access to both downtown as well as I-5 with a mix of rental apartments, condos and single family homes. There are few townhomes near the lake and many more as you head north of Green Lake.
