- Sammamish earned Forbes’ Friendliest Town in the Nation designation by keepings its small-town atmosphere while fully engaging its citizens in the active planning of its shared spaces. Miles of connected trails, five large parks (and two more in the works), a planned aquatics center, skate park, two golf clubs and plentiful water recreation keep residents happily playing outside.
- Open green spaces separate housing developments and common areas and allow for scenic breathing room. Generous property size and an abundance of view properties capturing the mountains, trees, and Sammamish Lake and River celebrate the sense of place here.
- Frequent art fairs, concerts in the park, and spectacular annual events such as Sammamish Nights, Sustainable September and Fourth on the Plateau engage residents and visitors alike.
