Third Place Commons-the Jewel of Lake Forest Park

Third Place Commons is located in the heart of Lake Forest Park on the northwest corner of Lake Washington. The Commons is built around Third Place Books, the commons has a great indoor public gathering area, five restaurant, wireless internet, a stage for speeches/performances and a community room.  

Third Place Books has over 200,000 books both new and used and bargain books. The Commons is intentionally centered around books. The element of books makes it a great place to linger, relax, eat, laugh, and just chill as the world goes by.

Third Place Books serves as the engine that makes the commons go, offering something for everyone with a full calendar of events where you can learn a language, practice your Mah Jongg, attend a writers workshop or you can check in for storytime.

Outside the Commons the parking lot morphs into a Farmers Market every Sunday from May-October. One of the most popular events is the “Author Events” the Commons host hundreds of authors every year to read, discuss and sign their books.

A great place to go to when you just want to get out of the house, read a book, hold an event of get a bite to eat.

Love anything along Lake Washington - it's so beautiful. There's a very cool dog park along the lake - we visited last fall - can't remember the name, bit it was lovely.

I like the Farmer's Market idea at Third Place Commons - sounds right up my alley.
