Bothell is the perfect blend of honored heritage in a peaceful suburban atmosphere. Visit the Bothell Historical Museum or take a walking tour of 100-year-old, preserved buildings and soak in the old-time Bothell vibe. Or shop at the Country Village, with its antique shops, farmer’s market, artists’ studios and a wine-tasting room nestled into converted farm buildings.
Old Main/Downtown is the recipient of a major revitalization plan designed by residents to produce a highly walkable site for residential dwellings, new businesses and refurbished historic buildings.
The Doctor Reuben Chase House, home of Bothell’s first doctor, is near the campuses of Cascadia College and the University of Washington, Bothell, all in the North Creek neighborhood. North Creek is also the site of some of the major employers in Bothell – three business parks cover more than 300 acres in this part of town. Plenty of parks and trails dot the area, as well as five lighted sports fields providing extra-long game times.
Remember to take in some live productions at the Northshore Performing Arts Center or attend year-round festivals and community events.
The Canyon Park neighborhood on the north end of town boasts not only several major employers, a bustling commercial district, and easy proximity to the I-405, but also two large parks, several historic farmsteads on the National Register of Historic Places, and even an original schoolhouse.
Get outdoors in the 250 acres of green space, parks and trails, several skirting the beautiful Sammamish River, including Trail to the Park at Bothell Landing. With nineteen parks, each with different equipment and themes, seven golf courses, a skate park and a sports complex, you are bound to find your favorite recreational activities here.
“Come for a day – or a lifetime” invites the imagination. Come where the past, present and future blur – in Bothell.
