This is a scenic and interesting walk around Seattle’s in-city recreational and industrial Lake Union.  Get upfront and close with everything that floats, from canoes to yachts to houseboats to floatplanes.  The south end of the Lake features a growing collection of restaurants, as well as the Center for Wooden Boats and the Museum of History and Industry.  You’ll walk over two drawbridges and along several piers, as well as old railroad right-of-way.  And, before you finish, you’ll enjoy the J.P. Patches and Gertrude sculpture.  There are public restrooms near the beginning, and other facilities at restaurants along the way.


From I-5 North or Southbound, take exit 169/NE 45th Street.  Turn West onto NE 45th to Meridian Ave. N.  Turn left onto Meridian and proceed downhill to 34th.  Fisheries Supply faces N 34th.  Turn onto 34th for the best on-street parking.  Please do not park in store lot.  Metro #26, which runs from 3rd Avenue downtown, will get you to N. 35th and Wallingford Ave N., which is a one block from the start.
