    Bonney Lake Reviews

    All Categories
    Living in Bonney Lake has many advantages. It's a relatively small town, yet has access to many amenities, such as several one stop shopping centers including a Walmart Superstore and Fred Meyer. The city is breaking ground for a long-awaited Costco.
    Restaurants include Applebee’s, Red Robin, Trappers Sushi, Chinese, Thai and fast food restaurants. Something for every taste and budget.
    For entertainment and recreation, we have a 6-screen movie theater, and for summer fun, Lake Tapps is centrally located for easy access. Many residents take advantage of the lake for boating, water skiing and fishing using the well-maintained boat launch to access the water. A picnic area, ball park and skate park are included in the amenities.
    Our schools are excellent. There is no overcrowding. All extracurricular sports are supported.
    All above mentioned items and many more are located within a 5-mile radius inside the city.
    Review Bonney Lake
    If you’re looking for a town with a rural feel but still want easy access to your favorite stores and restaurants, Bonney Lake might be the right place for you. Not only is this fast-growing community a great place for families, it’s also home to excellent schools, multiple lakes and fun annual events that bring the whole community together.

    And a Bonney Lake summer wouldn’t be complete without taking part in family activities during Bonney Lake Days, including a fun run, parade, pancake breakfast and even a skateboarding competition. Making sure crime doesn’t ruin the fun, the Bonney Lake Police are helping the town keep robberies down to just six in 2012 and maintaining a violent crime rate almost three times lower than the rest of the state.
    I've lived in the City of Bonney Lake all my life. I would like to say I reviewed only on my Neighborhood which I lived in for 17 years. Many parts of Bonney lake are safe and good neighborhoods. I've lived in Cedarview all my life which is a neighborhood inside of Bonney Lake. We've had many safety concerns and thefts inside our neighborhood. All of the public schools and community members around Bonney Lake are excellent and well respected. Nightlife varies and are gatherings all around to get you involved with a nice night out. Bonney Lake has many different opportunities as a student to get jobs, whether its part-time or not, there are many businesses that offer different positions to hardworking students. Bonney Lake is a small town that offers chances to grow and chances to excel in everything you do, whether it's in the community or in our schools.
