Kenmore is home to Bastyr University, which is nestled into St. Edwards state park. It is a small town with a strong community vibe despite diverse economic and ethnic inhabitants. The park has miles and miles worth of trails and the best of those reach the waterside.
So much of the best waterfront in all of Puget Sound is closed off as exclusively accessible only to the rich, but Juanita Bay in Kirkland is absolutely adorable, with a walk-around 1/2 mile deck path out into the water. As you move on up Juanita Dr NE, a slight turn right into Hughes Point offers more public beachline as a part of Kirkland Parks. Even though this is all officially "Kirkland", it is attached to the best of Kenmore, along Juanita Dr. NE to Bothell Way NE.

Great school district, smaller town evolving into a thriving suburban area! Also some great food/beer places.
Kenmore is great! There are plenty of summer events offered by the city for families. Great community spaces like the Hangar are also available.
