Mountlake Terrace

Previously known as "Alderwood Manor," this bustling metropolitan was first settled at the turn of the century.

Mountlake Terrace focuses on family, which is why it devotes over 260 acres to recreation, including its popular aquatic center, nine neighborhood parks, three sports complexes, and 14 sports fields. Every summer, the city hosts Tour de Terrace, a Seafair festival that attracts thousands of people from all over the region.

Mountlake Terrace takes advantage of its beautiful, outdoor setting. The city maintains miles of trails, and the tall evergreen trees lining the streets give the feeling of living in the heart of a beautiful park. The crystal blue Lake Ballinger and the mountain ranges to the east and west add to the serene feel.

Mountlake Terrace provides a revitalized downtown, featuring fun nightspots and restaurants that offer a range of dining options. Visit Double DD Meats, Diamond Knot Brewpub, and Cinebarre (where you can enjoy theater and microbrews).

Visiting Seattle

Mountlake Terrace has easy access. I-5 runs right through the heart of the city, which can put you in Seattle in 20 minutes or at SeaTac International Airport in 35 minutes. In addition, the city has access to three transit lines. That means fast and easy commutes for residents traveling to Seattle and other neighboring cities. Mountlake Terrace is just a bus ride away from the University of Washington, and there are four hospital systems within a 10-mile radius.
