Description: Greenlake is a manmade lake that has a paved path (<3 miles) around the lake as well as nearby lawn areas, tennis courts, playing field, and even a pitch n' putt. President Clinton jogged here when he was in town a couple years ago. The path has designated lanes for wheeled traffic and pedestrians. Greenlake is very scenic and good exercise for both you and your dog. Water is available in restrooms.
Downsides: Can get busy sometimes. Not for dogs that get spooked easily with bikes and rollerbladers.
Directions: Take I-5 to 45th/50th St. exit to 50th St. Head west on 50th, turn right at large intersection onto Greenlake Way. Avoid getting onto Highway 99 southbound on the west side of the lake.
