Kenmore sits on Lake Washington, between Lake Forest Park, Bothell, and Kirkland. Kenmore is largely a bedroom community, though there are a few industries and commercial businesses thriving in the city. It is a dream for commuters who want to live in a quiet suburban city with easy access to the employment centers on the Eastside.

Kenmore has numerous parks, including Log Boom Park right on Lake Washington. The park connects directly to the 27 mile Burke-Gilman Trail, providing bike and walking access to Bothell in the East, and Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood to the West. Within the park you’ll find a public marina, as well as jet ski, kayak, and stand-up paddle board rentals.

One of Kenmore’s most well-known businesses, Kenmore Air, also operates on the lake. Kenmore Air is a seaplane airline who’s famous yellow planes make flights from Kenmore and Seattle’s Lake Union to numerous destinations throughout the Northwest, including the San Juan Islands and Vancouver, BC.
