About Kenmore

Kenmore is great for families, young couples, people who enjoy suburban life; we have Saint Edwards State Park, which was originally a Native American camping and fishing ground, and now has many miles of trails, waterfront activities, and one of the coolest play structures. It’s still affordable to rent and buy!

In 2009, Kenmore was voted as the best Seattle-area community in which to live by Seattle Magazine. With its lakeside properties and safe neighborhoods, it’s not hard to see why!

The city of Kenmore is in the midst of an ambitious downtown redevelopment that’s already seen the construction of a new City Hall and library, new community building and public plaza and two big apartment complexes.
