The popular Green Lake neighborhood in north central Seattle surrounds the park for which it was named and is bordered by N. 85th Street and Licton Springs to the north, N. 50th Street and Wallingford to the south, Interstate 5 to the east, and Highway 99/Aurora Ave. N. and Phinney Ridge to the west. The neighborhood was annexed into Seattle in 1891 after a trolley line was installed that extended from Fremont to the north end of Green Lake. After significant re-development over recent years, Green Lake is now one of Seattle's most desirable and walkable neighborhoods. Green Lake Park features tennis and basketball courts, athletic equipment, playfields, community center with indoor pool, water activity rentals, swimming beaches, boat launch, and a 2.8-mile paved path around the lake for walkers, runners, bikers, and skaters.
