About Shoreline

Shoreline boasts a unique history and character derived from original settlements dating back to the late 1800s. The quality that drew early settlers to the area remains dominant to this day: location. The City of Shoreline offers classic Puget Sound beauty and the convenience of suburban living with the attractions of nearby urban opportunities. According to the results of the most recent Citizens Satisfaction Survey, Shoreline residents continue to give their community high marks. Ninety-three percent of residents rate Shoreline as a great or good place to live. Traffic and congestion management continue to be the areas residents express the lowest levels of satisfaction with and believe should receive the most emphasis over the next two years.

Shoreline’s more than 400 acres of park land and open space offer a variety of enriching recreation and outdoor experiences.
