Greenbank is located in Central Whidbey Island, and primarily is a "pass-thru" from the south to the north ends of the Island.
Greenbank is the home of one of the only remaining operating Loganberry farms and wineries in the world. The farm is now owned by a local land trust, and aside from the wonderful scenery and wine (of course) the farm hosts the annual Loganberry festival. Musicians and craftspersons come from all over the Northwest. There are pie eating contests for kids of all ages, hay wagon rides over the countryside, and wine tasting. Bring a picnic anytime and enjoy!
Just north of the farm is the Lake Hancock overlook, with views to Port Townsend and the Keystone Ferry. Lake Hancock is a former Navy practice range, and is still on U.S. Navy property. Although it is a premier area, fishing and crabbing are not allowed on Navy property to the indignation of the locals...
South of the Loganberry farm is the world famous Meerkerk Rhododendron Gardens. At peak bloom in early to mid-May, this wonderful, beautiful, serene place is an Island paradise within paradise.
People who live in the area value their peaceful way of life. The area is rural and quiet, with homes mostly on small acreage pieces and vacant land available. However, some of the best salmon and steelhead fishing is located off Lagoon Point, on the west side of Greenbank. Homes there are located on canals and most have private docks.
