In the heart of North Seattle, freshwater Green Lake is surrounded by a 2.8 mile path where thousands stroll, jog, skate, and bike. Swimming, kayaking, and recreational rowing classes are also popular on the lake. The surrounding park is home to a variety of tree species, many labeled with brass nameplates. North of the lake, the Greenwood neighborhood is a vibrant, charming district. East of the lake across I-5 is the Roosevelt neighborhood, with a bustling commercial district centered around a Whole Foods grocery on 65th, and a cluster of high-end electronic shops along Roosevelt Way's "audio row."
