Wallingford is a growing neighborhood that is bordered by I-5 to the east, Highway 99 to the west, Green Lake to the North, and Lake Union to the South. Culturally, Wallingford has a great blend of long-standing businesses like Dick’s Drive-In and trendy spots like Molly Moon’s Ice Cream and Fainting Goat Gelato. Centered around 45th Street, Wallingford is easily reached from the nearby University of Washington and contains dozens of shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars. The key landmark of the neighborhood is Gas Works Park, a retired coal processing plant that has acres of grassy hills to take in the Seattle Skyline and watch Kenmore Air Seaplanes use Lake Union as their personal runway. Although the area is primarily older single-family homes, plenty of newer townhomes can be found in this central neighborhood.
