2017 Renton Residents’ Guide


MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR Welcome to Renton, one of the most livable cities in the Puget Sound region. Located along the southern shore of Lake Washington, Renton is a culturally diverse, business-friendly city providing excellent opportunities, wonderful dining experiences, a wide variety of shopping options and much more. We enjoy beautiful, well-maintained parks and recreation facilities where families can relax and play, a nationally-recognized public school system, world-class health care services, abundant natural beauty and a rich and diverse cultural heritage. What makes Renton particularly attractive is a great location and a quality of life enhanced by cultural amenities, safe streets, and a range of housing options. Denis Law Urban apartments, downtown Mayor condominiums, luxury homes, beautiful multi-family developments, and quality, affordable single-family subdivisions are among the various housing options available to families of all income levels. Looking for something to do? Stroll the Cedar River Trail, visit the Renton Historical Museum, take in breathtaking views at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park, or play a round of golf at Maplewood Golf Course. If you like fresh produce, home-made foods, and gorgeous flowers, you’ll enjoy our Farmers Market every Tuesday from June to September at Piazza Park in downtown. A number of world-class companies call Renton home, including The Boeing Company, PACCAR, and IKEA. Our friendly, pro-business climate attracts and keeps scores

of businesses, including Fry’s Electronics, Wizards of the Coast, and Sam’s Club. In June, a luxury Hyatt Regency hotel and conference center will open on the shores of Lake Washington near Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park. The Landing, a premier shopping experience featuring creative boutiques, brand-name shops, cozy cafes, restaurants, salons, spas and more. Renton’s downtown, the Highlands, and other neighborhoods have several wonderful restaurants and retail stores. Renton is also the proud home of the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks, Super Bowl XLVIII champions, draw capacity crowds to training camp in July and August and the team’s success is a deep source of community pride. In recent years Renton’s population has increased significantly, propelling us from a small working-class town to a wonderfully diverse community of over 103,000 residents. Renton’s active population cares deeply about their community, schools, neighborhoods, and the city itself. Public participation is the cornerstone of society, and Renton is fortunate to have active citizens who give their time and talents to make our community a great place to live, work, learn, and play. Mayor Denis Law

Thank you for supporting Local Businesses! We look forward to making you a customer forever!
