"Close to the heart of things, without all the fuss"

West of Roosevelt, N 50th is a delightful residential neighborhood: relatively quiet except at rush hour, lots of parks (at 9th NE, at Meridian, and Greenlake/Woodland Park, of course!), a couple churches, friendly people who walk their dogs and plant flowers in their yards. And yet, it leads right into the U District, with all that provides, and up onto Phinney Ridge with its great eats and great views. And with its own ramp onto I-5, it gives easy access to downtown or Northgate or wherever you want to go.

The Meridian playground is a personal favorite of mine. Ever since I was a kid, I loved the stone arch gates that led into the park. It made me feel like I was passing into an adventure novel.

I haven't gotten involved myself (I need to get a little more in shape!) but I know that a few neighborhood league softball and soccer teams meet up at the 9th NE park.

And then, there's the beautiful Library building right on Roosevelt and 50th. The library is bigger than it looks, too, so it's a great place to beat the heat or dodge the raindrops.
