Green Lake Sign and Bench

The park bench near the intersection of W. Green Lake Way and 65th seems to be missing its large sign. We got a tip from a reader (thanks Karen!) who sent us a note saying she had seen the bench and was afraid the metal sign had been vandalized. The Parks Dept told her that it was off for repair at the Park’s carpenter and would be reinstalled shortly. The same will likely happen to the sign on Ravenna soon.

An interesting note: the wood used for the bench is actually from Woodland Park.

According to the Karen the stone sign reading “Green Lake” was one of four that were purchased and erected by the Green Lake Community Council several years ago.
