Green Lake Park Furry Fun!

With such good weather and fall rapidly approaching we should take advantage and go to Green Lake and fur it up! Let's enjoy ourselves and make it a memorable one for visitors that day! =3

The plan would be to go for a stroll around the lake interacting with others we see along the way. If anyone wants to get a work out I’d be up for walking around the path around the entire lake in suit, but if not, we can walk back and forth on the path as the walkers and visitors will circulate around us instead XD Perhaps also swing by the playground near the community center and just have an all out fun day! Of course socializing, enjoying the weather and beautiful scenery (including pets & people) XD, and having a kick @ss time!  Suggest bringing food, lots of fluids, and anything else you would like. There are no grocery stores around, a starbucks across the street, small snack vendors, and small restaurants along the ring road.

There is NO ADMISSION charge (FREE) and the usual rules apply:
- Please keep it appropriate, there will be children there
- Have a good time
- Be careful of the little ones under foot
- Try to watch out for one another because we are out in public
Hope enough of you are interested (and the weather holds out – Looks good according to http://www.komonews.com/weather/) so that we can make this happen! Look forward to see y'all there!!!! =3 ~C>

*<*<*<*< MEETING TIME & LOCATION >*>*>*>*

9:00AM along the path near the main parking lot area on the EASTSIDE (closest to I-5) near the Community Center. (There are large concrete planters with trees/shrubs/flowers inside them between the path and the parking lot). PLANNING on stopping by the meeting location every hour or two on the hour (12:00pm) to see if others have come to join in on the fun!

See location here: http://goo.gl/maps/tQJkH


I suggest parking on the ring road surrounding the lake as well as the residential streets directly off the main road. The main parking lot has a 3 or 4hr time limit.


This gives us enough time to chat n' chill, roam the park grounds to get a feel for the layout, allow for late comers to arrive, enjoy suiting while the weather is a bit cooler in the morning & for fursuiters to suit up (The only areas to get suited up are in the public bathrooms or near and inside your car) all in time for when the public begins to really start showing up around 11am – 4pm. (Lunch, Kids Playground, Picnic, park fun, exercise, dog walking, etc…) Please try to arrive on time if possible so you can easily join the group and not have to search for us all over the place (hoping to successfully find us). Everyone can leave the event as they see fit. I am guessing a good ending time to be around 4pm or so depending on how everyone feels…

    The weather held out for us furries to have fun. Walked twice around the lake in suit and the interaction with the park walkers/goers was fantastic! Met a new fellow fur and we all socialized and chillaxed for a long while afterwards. Great times! ~C>

    *****UPDATE***** PLEASE READ..."The weather is currently heavy overcast with spotty drizzle/light rain and the ground is wet". Will arrive @ 9AM-ish, and take it from there to see if the weather improves. EVENT MAY TERMINATE EARLIER than stated pending weather conditions (not currently looking good). Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse after such perfect conditions earlier this week and a decent forecast weekend. Sorry for any potential inconvenience, but weather is something beyond my control. ~C>

    just realized. if we walk all the way around the lake we may need to bring a cooler of drinks with us. Otherwise that's a pretty long walk back to the cars for a drink.

    • Naq R.

      for the fursuiters I meen

      September 21, 2012

    Hey Siber: I'm pretty enthused about a loop around the whole lake (I'll even bring my inlines :3). I do this park pretty often and all the people there are super-friendly and are always calling out to you and telling you how cool it is we're all fluffy and stuff. Sometimes the dogs bark a bit at you, thats it :)

    Anyway. I'd be bringing rotty with me in suit as well, but I know I'm not going to be there at 9am... :(

    What do you recommend? I could make a time like Noon just fine.

      MJ, Yeah I'd like to walk (not skate as I'm not that good and wouldn't want to risk injury to myself or a suit) around the entire lake if any furs are up for it (will have to see what the consensus is at the time).
      I selected this location based on the positive fursuit location mentioned by you and Skyan. I updated the post stating that we will TRY to stop by the meeting location every hour or two (Guarantee to check @ 12:00pm/Noon for sure) to meet up with those coming after the 9:00am start time. How does that sound? ~C>

  • Naq R.

    I'll be there provided I'm not dying of exhaustion :P

    Justice JayBird Clark, If you are able to make it, there should be at least one fursuit maker attending. Look forward to seeing you there if you arrive later (at the meeting location on the hour)! :3 ~C>

  • Maeve 'Mae' A.
