Today’s “on location” post brought to you by Megan Downs. Megan is interning for me this year, and has done a great job at capturing potential shoot locations around the city.
Greenlake Park is located just north of the University of Washington, just off of I-5. While it is fairly easy to find, the parking lot is rather small and can create some trouble if it is a sunny day, there is a second parking lot on the south end of the lake but it is also small in size. But don’t let that differ you from visiting; Greenlake has many things to offer!
Besides the wonderful trail around the entire lake (2.8 miles) there is also lush fields of grass, that can be used for any number of things, such as laying out in the sun, playing Ultimate Frisbee, or playing fetch with your dog! There is also a great playground for your children to enjoy, a basketball court and you can even rent out boats and kayaks to go out on the lake with!
With the vast amount of activities here, you can capture photos that will show the whole family having fun!
