I have lived in Bonney Lake my whole life and it was a great and safe place to grow up. A place where you know your neighbors and the high school wasn’t too big. It had a good community feel but not a lot of entertainment or night life. It is continuing to grow everyday in population, which is making it hard to get around. There is a lot more people and construction, but all with the hope that more night life for the younger generation will follow. Also needs more restaurants and stores other than grocery ones in order to keep you in town instead of having to drive 20 mins for what you need. There is also a great view of the sunset that I have taken advantage of throughout the years. We have good schools and safe neighborhoods, with kids that can play on the street.

It's a nice little city that within the past 5 ears has started to grow at an incredible rate. Growth has been so intensive, in fact, that a very large neighborhood is looking into becoming registered as its own town, and a Costco was just installed in the center of the city. Traffic has gotten worse with population growth but otherwise it is just fine for driving. Most people here are nice and the city is decently clean. Improvements to buildings have been made steadily over the years, and it is slowly cleaning up the face of this town.
Bonney Lake, Washington is a beautiful place to live. Seeing Mount Rainier almost every day as you drive around town is a spectacular experience. Nearby to beautiful Lake Tapps and a short drive to skiing and hiking spots. Bonney lake has a mix of rural areas and neighborhoods as well as lots of shopping and restaurants. It is a nice place to live.
