Driving Directions

THIS IS THE VIEW FROM PARKING ON WHITMAN AVENUE

The Pits are just south of the upper bocce green of the Woodland park Lawn Bowling Club. Go to www.wplbc.org for their map and directions. If you look at Google Maps you'll see the roofs over both sides of our horseshoe courts. The parking for us is on Whitman Ave N. The club is just off Route 99 (Aurora Ave) . It is very difficult to get to the club driving south on Aurora. When I have to go this way, I have to go all the way around Green Lake on the east side. I wouldn't recommend this approach. I'd use the I-5 directions coming from the North.


If you are coming from the south of Green Lake and are using Aurora, get into the right lane when you pass 45th St. The Woodland Park Zoo will be on your left. Slow way down after the third overpass and look intently for the Woodland Park sign with red, orange, green and blue colors. (This park sign is just a few feet past the road) Turn right at this sign and then quickly left onto Whitman Ave N. Park on this road as the pits will be directly east. If you miss this turn, you'll see an exit for 65th St and W Greenlake Way. Turn here but it's difficult to get back as Whitman Ave is one way.

Driving South on I-5 (from north of Green Lake)

    Take exit 169 toward NE 50th St/Seattle Pacific Univ. Stay straight and get into the right lane when divider allows (0.4 Miles).

    Turn RIGHT onto NE 50th St (0.8 miles)

    Turn RIGHT onto Green Lake Way N. (0.2 miles)

     Follow left curve onto W. Green Lake Way N (0.4 miles)

     Turn LEFT onto Whitman Ave N. There is a sign there for the horseshoe pits. There is a small golf course on the right and a soccer field on the left.

    Follow this road up the hill. At the top keep right, then a quick left and a very quick right. Then park along Whitman Ave. The courts will be just to the east.

Driving North on I-5

    Exit on 65th St (next exit past exit 169) Keep to the left and turn LEFT onto 65th St.

    Go to the end of 65th. Turn LEFT onto Woodlawn Ave.

    Go one block, turn RIGHT onto 64th St.

    Go one block and turn LEFT onto East Green Lake Way.

    Turn RIGHT at the very next road - West Green Lake Way - maybe a mile. There will be the pitch and putt golf course on the right.      Turn LEFT onto Whitman Ave N. There is a sign there for the horseshoe pits. There is a small golf course on the right and a soccer field on the left.
