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.
You can bird watch. Some persons fish.
Information including maps, photos, amenities.
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.
