We adore our neighborhood. It’s central, walkable, beautiful and charming. The lake is a huge draw and we spend lots of time at Mt Baker park with our son and dogs.

Very diverse, close to the water and close access to public transportation. Very wealthy neighborhood closer to the water but also a large portion of middle class homes farther West.
Mount Baker is a very diverse community. This can be seen walking down the street and noticing the businesses. Soul food, Jewish bakery, and an authentic Mexican are all one the same street. Their patrons are just as diverse.
