  WHAT’S LIVING IN Phinney Ridge LIKE?

As the name implies, Phinney Ridge sits along a long ridge whose slopes provide its residents with great views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains on the west and Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains on the east.

Located in northwest Seattle, this neighborhood is primarily residential. Homes tend to be on the larger side and sit on larger properties. 

A popular attraction for kids is the Woodland Park Zoo, which offers camps and educational programming in addition to the usual furry residents.

Phinney Ridge is bordered on the north by Greenwood, on the east by Northgate and Green Lake, on the south by Fremont, and on the west by Ballard and Whittier Heights.
