Everyone loves to go to Green Lake park and it is one of the iconic places in Seattle. The walk around the lake is pleasant especially if the weather is warm and sunny. There are many lovely sights to distract.

Whether you are a walker, runner or cyclist you'll enjoy the park. It is best to go early in the day before it gets too crowded.
