Surrounded by a grassy park with elegant tall trees, the mainstay of the Green Lake community is the lake itself. The population here includes walkers, bikers, roller bladders, dogs, ducks, geese and herons. There is a rowing team at the south end of the lake and at the north end there’s a community pool, basketball courts and tennis courts.
Living in this neighborhood means living within walking distance of this luscious lake-along with a surrounding array of restaurants and shops. Single family homes are located on all sides of the lake with new condominiums and town homes cropping up on the east side of the lake. There are signs of new construction around the neighborhood, but Green Lake is defined by its turn-of-the-century craftsman style homes and bungalow architecture.
Green Lake is a natural preserve to hundreds of species of plants and trees, along with waterfowls and birds. There’s even a Bathhouse Theater that features a local theater company. An estimated one million people visit Green Lake every year.
