If you walk around the lake that gives this neighborhood its name, it can be hard to believe you're in a city of nearly 700,000 people. Located in northwest Seattle, Haller Lake is a middle-class area of residential streets surrounding the lake at its center. It's this mellow vibe that makes this a popular area with families (you'll find fewer singles here than in many other Seattle neighborhoods). Nearly one in five residents are foreign-born.

Along its western and southern edges are business districts featuring restaurants, shops, and grocery stores.

The Haller Lake Community Club and its many committees keep close tabs on neighborhood affairs. For recreation you can go swimming or boating in the lake, run the trails of North Acres Park, play sports on one of the park's many fields, or take your kids to the local pool. Perhaps the most unique local activity is the amateur curling club, which practices the odd sport that pops up every four years at the Winter Olympics where teams push a stone puck to a target.

Haller Lake is bordered on the north by Shoreline, on the east and south by Northgate, and on the west by Bitter Lake.
