Community Information 

Seattle lies on a narrow strip of land between the salt waters of Puget Sound and the fresh waters of Lake Washington. Beyond the waters lie two rugged mountain ranges, the Olympics to the west and the Cascades to the east. It is a city built on hills and around water, in a mild marine climate that encourages prolific vegetation and abundant natural resources. Seattle is proud of its arts and cultural institutions, the many live theaters, and the downtown art museum. Seattle is home to the Pioneer Square and the Pike Place Market as well as many beautiful parks. Its impressive roster of  professional and collegiate sports make for a great evening for its visitors and citizens alike. It is a city that continues to grow but that is able to respect the uniqueness of its natural setting.
