Kenmore Reviews

55 reviews
All Categories
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.
Close to Seattle, the East Side, and Lake Washington, Kenmore is a nice town perfect for raising a family. Kenmore is within the Northshore school district which includes award winning schools like Inglemoor High School. With a growing restaurant scene, access to St. Ed's start national park, and short drives to local night life hot spots, there is always something to do on your own or with family and friends.
