The Seward Park neighborhood in south Seattle incorporates a small peninsula that juts out into Lake Washington and provides 300 acres (121 hectares) of green space. The 2.5 mile loop around the park is a great walk or run. You can actually run this route for a good cause by joining the popular "Furry 5K" race held each June to benefit the Seattle Animal Shelter organization.
Given its lakefront location, this is the most expensive neighborhood in south Seattle. Large homes site on the prime lakefront property and more modest residential homes make up most of the remaining real estate. There are some basic businesses and dining and shopping options on the western side of the neighborhood.
