Green Lake Shoreline Restoration

September 10, 2014 5:51am


If you’ve walked Green Lake recently you’ve likely noticed the temporary chain link fencing around the north end near the wading pool. Don’t worry, it’s not because of the toxic algae. It’s actually to help restore the eroding shoreline by adding vegetation. The Seattle Parks Department tells us that this is mostly the result of people wading and bringing their dogs to the lake (ahem… a little PSA here: it’s illegal to bring your pup in the lake!). The project also includes the installation of a wooden fence.

The project should be completed in October.
