Historic Olmsted Green Lake Park Tour July 15

July 11, 2017 6:06am

Once a year the Friends of Seattle Olmsted Parks hosts a guided tour of Green Lake Park, so mark your calendars for Saturday July 15. History buffs know that Green Lake was designed by the Olmsteds, the same architects who designed Central Park. To find out more on the Olmsted influence of Green Lake Park you should read our previous post AND sign up for this annual walking tour hosted this Saturday.

The two hour walking tour will include photographs, plans and other images to show landscapes and the changes to the park overtime. The tour will circle the lake, so bring your walking shoes (and maybe a sun hat).

It is free to the public and appropriate for all ages.

Here’s the details: July 15 at 10 a.m. Meet at the NE corner of the Green Lake Community Center
