GREEN LAKE: A classic walk in Seattle

Seattle has salt water and fresh water parks; wild shorelines, and tame.

Have you walked (or biked or run or roller-bladed) around Green Lake?

Thousands of years ago a glacier carved what is now Green Lake. Green Lake may be fresh water and have a tame paved trail, but it has water to swim in and stare at, and trees and lawns and playgrounds.

It is flat. It is under three miles.  These are some of the views.

You can boat.

On the shore across the lake is the home of Seattle Public Theater. The current show is a thriller, On Clover Road by Steven Dietz.

You can bird watch. Some persons fish.

IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF SEATTLE OR CAN’T GET TO GREEN LAKE,  VISIT FRESH WATER NEAR YOU (e.g. a river, a pond, a lake). TELL US WHERE YOU VISITED IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOUR PHOTOS TOO.

    I went to Jefferson Park on 12/5/16. Go through a community before you park the car, there is a basketball court, a playground, a waterfall, and a shelter place for picnics. There is also a golf course. I really enjoyed it there.

    I stood on the dock to watch the ducks cluster near the shore. Over a few minutes time, the clouds lifted to partially obscure the moon, creating a hazy reflection on the water. It was gorgeous! I understand how artists and poets can be so inspired by the moon.
