Green Lake is one of my three best places to enjoy the sun in and around Seattle. When runners talk about getting together for a run often it is Green Lake also you can find the premier runners shop on the perimeter of Green Lake. You can rent a bike from Gregg’s Cycle, paddle board, kayak, boat from Green Lake Boat Rentals. There are six restaurants around lake with great outdoor seating on sunny days and the PCC has a great deli for those days a picnic on a blanket fulfills your sunny day fantasy. Meeting a friend is easy at any of the six coffee shops. Green Lake is the safest place to enjoy yourself without the hassles of in city sun bathing. Bus service to Green Lake is very good street parking is a problem on weekend sunny days.
