Green Lake has a trail around it and is well used by locals in search of some exercise. Maybe a 10 minute drive from here.

A gorgeous and flat 3-mile loop around a lake, great for people-watching, walking, biking, or rollerblading. In the summer you can also rent paddle boats or even take a swim!

Zoo
“No other zoo (except the Bronx Zoo) has picked up as many prizes from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums as Woodland Park Zoo. Many of the individual habitats have garnered awards, like the penguin enclosure where you can view Humboldt penguins darting underwater from a window. Observe the species of the Northwest at the Northern Trail habitat, including gray wolves, elk, North American river otters and brown bears. The largest section is Tropical Asia, for the likes of Malayan tigers, Indian rhinos, tapirs, sloth bears and orangutans, while African Savanna hosts favorites like African lions, zebras, giraffes and ostriches. There’s always something going on each day like penguin feeding, a walk-through bird experience and bird of prey demonstrations with owls and hawks.”
