North Seattle Neighborhoods: Jackson Park

Driving North on I-5, just before the Northeast 145th Avenue exit, you see a big green space.  That's Jackson Park golf course.  It is also a small neighborhood located north of NE 125th and Roosevelt, east of I-5 (and 5thNE), south of NE 145th and west of  15th NE.  

Jackson Park Golf CourseThe 160 acre Jackson Park golf course takes up most of the neighborhood.   Recently renovated in 2001, The golf course has been around since 1928 and was renovated in 2001 to allow Thornton Creek to flow through in a more environmentally friendly way.  Rumor has it, that Tiger Woods has even golfed here, with a record score of 65.

Southeast of the golf course is a community p-patch garden and a couple of wooded areas with trails for walking.Trail

The rest of the neighborhood includes single family homes, a condo next to the golf course and a couple of apartment buildings,  There is a Starbucks in the neighborhood as well as a couple of other small businesses.  Easy access to the express bus route and freeway make this a really easy neighborhood to commute from.

Most homes were built in the early 1950's with few newer homes sprinkled in.  Homes are currently selling between $365,000 and $500,000.
