Encyclopedia > Lake Forest Park, Washington

Lake Forest Park is a city in King County, Washington just north of the Seattle city limits. A bedroom community by design, most of the city consists of single-family housing on medium to large-sized lots, with an emphasis placed on retaining the natural features of the landscape. Less than 4% of the city land is zoned commercial; most of that is in one location, and there are no industrial areas whatsoever. Notable features include a large amount of lakefront and lakeview residential property, convenient access to the Burke-Gilman Trail, a summertime-only farmer's market, and Third Place Books, a large used and new books store. The population was 13,142 at the 2000 census. King County redirects here; you may be looking for King County, Texas. ...

History

Lake Forest Park was founded in 1912 by Ole Hanson and A.H. Reid as one of the Seattle area's first planned communities. Envisioned as a picturesque retreat for professionals, the developers planned roads and lots in strict consideration for natural landmarks. Until 1914 and completion of the Red Brick Road to nearby Kenmore and Bothell, it also marked the literal end of improved roads heading north from Seattle, with best access to points further north and east being by boat across Lake Washington or the Seattle, Lake Shore, and Eastern Railroad. 1912 (MCMXII) was a leap year starting on Monday in the Gregorian calendar (or a leap year starting on Tuesday in the 13-day-slower Julian calendar). ...

Lake Forest Park officially incorporated on June 20, 1961, in large part to help maintain its specific identity in the face of increasing local development pressing north from Seattle. Its main commercial core, the Lake Forest Park Town Centre, hugs Bothell Way on the eastern border of town, and also hosts the public library, police department, town hall, approximately 30 shops and small businesses, and in the summer, a farmer's market. In late 2005, city government began holding public meetings to discuss whether and how to improve this small area in order to develop a pedestrian-friendly shopping and residential hub.
