Along the northernmost shores of Lake Washington, the city of Kenmore features spectacular outdoor public spaces, a regional 18-mile paved trail, award winning businesses, and a highly recognized school district. In 2009, Kenmore was ranked #1 by Seattle Magazine for “Best Metropolitan Neighborhoods to Live” and named by Family Circle Magazine as “One of the 10 Best Towns for Families.” Kenmore is a fusion of suburban splendor, country retreat, and industrial port town since the city features the nation’s largest seaplane-only, commercial air facilities at Kenmore Air Harbor.
Almost all Kenmore residents have an estimated 27.9 minute commute into nearby Seattle, Bellevue, or Redmond, but Kenmore’s industrial port at the mouth of the Sammamish River retains a stable independent economy centered around cements, asphalts, landscape construction materials, stone fabrications, lumber, plywood, and millwork. As the industrial port in Kenmore continues to thrive and people desire to work in the thriving Puget Sound economy, but do not want to live in a big city, Kenmore is sure to see continued population growth from the current 21,280 residents. With a median home value of $581,400, many native Pacific Northwesterners are flocking to and investing in cities such as Kenmore. They are relatively affordable but home values are predicted to rise about 4.9% over the next year.
Views of Lake Washington and recreational outdoor options in Kenmore are plentiful with easy access to the Burke-Gilman Trail and the King County bike-trail system. Sites of local historical interest include the former St. Edward Seminary, now Saint Edward State Park, and Log Boom Park, a favorite of locals who enjoy a smaller beach setting right on the shores of Lake Washington. Like many cities in the Pacific Northwest, locals enjoy weekend trips to the Olympic Peninsula, the Cascade Mountains, or Rainier National Park that include hiking, camping, skiing, and snowboarding.
Kenmore is part of the Northshore School District and continued community education and engagement is offered through the nonprofit group Saint Edward Environmental Learning Center. They provide quarterly environmental education classes to the public in conjunction with Washington State Parks and Saint Edward State Park. Bastyr University, a leading private school of naturopathic medicine, is one of the more unique adult education opportunities and many come to Kenmore for the one-of-a-kind naturopathic curriculum. The city is also located between the University of Washington's main campus in Seattle and its satellite campus in nearby Bothell. Paved bike trails and express bus service connect the city to both campuses. The city also has a bus connection directly to Shoreline Community College.
