Kingsgate: Small Town Feel; Cosmopolitan Convenience

By
Real Estate Agent with The Cascade Team

The charming Kingsgate Neighborhood (http://www.kingsgate.org/) of Kirkland/Woodinville is only a 10-minute drive away from Bellevue Square Mall and 20-minutes from downtown Seattle, yet it is a place where people get to know each other and neighborhood events are commonplace.

What makes this neighborhood so wonderful and unique?  Well, perhaps the number one reason is the community pools.  These fully-staffed pools with adjacent parks and playgrounds create place for neighbors to gather and kids to play together.  From Easter Egg Hunts, complete with giant Easter Bunnies, to Annual Barbeques with free food and lots of games, tradition and friendship are integral to the character of Kingsgate!

The pools offer so much to their members.  Besides being great places for summer fun, each of these outdoor pools also hosts a swim team.  These teams compete in the Midlakes Swim League (http://www.midlakesswimleague.org/) and are open to kids ages 4-18! Each pool also offers  private and group swimming lessons as well as adult lap-swim times

Additional ammenities include: wading pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer fields, and covered picnic areas.  There is shopping area in the center of Kingsgate with an Ice Arena (http://www.kingsgateskatingclub.org/), a Grocery store, a number of stores, restaurants, banks, and salons, as well as the Kingsgate branch of the King County Library (http://www.kcls.org/kingsgate/).  You are also about 3 minutes away from I-405 and the nearest park-and-ride facilities.

Krista, so do I!  When you live a big city, it great to find ways to connect!  I live in Kingsgate myself and my own kids are on swim team, so I'm speaking from experience!
