Light Rail Stations

On Oct. 2, three Link light rail stations opened in Northgate, Roosevelt and the U-District. Each station boasts something new and exciting:

Northgate is now a hub for all things hockey, with ice rinks and training facilities now located near the station, as well as the upcoming 32 Bar and Grill. The Roosevelt station is right by Green Lake, and the U-District station sits near the University of Washington, Burke Museum and a year-round farmers market.
