Ravenna is a charming neighborhood with winding, tree lined streets. This community, tucked into Seattle’s north end, ranges from modest bungalows to stately, classic homes.
Ravenna is named after Ravenna, Italy. Though Ravenna is considered a residential neighborhood, it also is home to several businesses such as the University Village Shopping Center. Many of the neighborhood's residents are graduate students and professors at the University of Washington, with one of the main neighborhood roads, Ravenna Boulevard, commonly referred to as "professors' row.”
Ravenna Park, located near University Village and the walking/biking route connecting Green Lake to Burke-Gilman Trail, are popular features of the neighborhood.
Ravenna is bounded on the west by 15th and 20th Avenues NE, on the north by NE 75th and 85th Streets, on the east by 35th and 25th Avenues NE, and on the south by NE Ravenna Boulevard, and NE Blakeley or NE 45th Streets.
