As a bustling metropolis, the many and varied neighborhoods of greater Seattle ensure that there is something for everyone. Enatai, situated just off of I-90 on the shores of Lake Washington in Bellevue, offers a unique experience that balances the very best of city and country life.
Nature at Your Doorstep
Enatai is officially dubbed a “wooded residential sub-area” of Bellevue. The neighborhood is adorned with towering trees and hugs the shores of Lake Washington, which offers abundant recreational opportunities. As such, residents feel that living there is akin to living at a resort. The human residents aren’t the only ones who find value in the natural beauty of the neighborhood; deer, eagles, and blue herons also call the area home.
Parks and Amenities
While gazing at nature never gets old for Enatai residents, those looking to do more than just look have ample opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors in the area’s two parks.
Enatai Beach Park, located under the I-90 bridge, provides a gateway to Lake Washington as well as the many water trails of Mercer Slough Nature Park. The park features a swimming area and swimming dock, a boathouse, a picnic area, and seasonal rentals of canoes and kayaks.
Enatai Neighborhood Park features tennis courts, two sports courts for pickleball, a small area for picnicking, as well as a playground for kids.
The Triangle Pool is a community pool that offers memberships to residents and non-residents, as well as swim lessons, and a competitive swim team for children. It is widely regarded as a community gathering place in the neighborhood, with many residents using the space for celebrations and informal get-togethers.
Friendly Neighborhood Feel
The close-knit neighborhood is ideal for families, as residents organize many grass-roots activities, too. Whether it is the annual Oktoberfest held on one street, the back-to-school ice-cream social and Halloween events on another, or one of the many yearly block parties, chances are good there’s something every family can enjoy.
Enatai is known for its generous helping of natural beauty, along with being a walkable neighborhood with access to numerous recreational amenities. Additionally, the community is just a 15-minute drive from downtown Seattle, so residents have easy access to all of the big city conveniences, too. This mix makes it an ideal place to live.
