Green Lake Wading Pool

free admission

The Green Lake Wading Pool is the perfect place to take kids on a summer's day.

It's located in Green Lake park, just 10 minutes north of Seattle's downtown.   

There are two beaches at Green Lake, but the wading pool is a great option if you have little kids. 

There's a lovely grassed around the wading pool for families to relax, and ample trees for shade.

Just across the road is Ben and Jerry's (icecream) for a sweet treat.
