City Highlight: Shoreline & Richmond Beach

Exploring Shoreline & Richmond Beach


The city of Shoreline, with its proximity to the city of Seattle, abundant local resources, and beautiful views, is an ideal place to live. There are 404 acres of park lands are located within the Shoreline city limits.

Residents and visitors can enjoy the saltwater shoreline, a botanical garden, an interurban trail plus hiking trails, along with recently updated athletic fields, courts and playgrounds.

Shoreline encompasses 11.74 square miles and has a population of    53,000+ residents.

Richmond Beach

Richmond Beach is the northernmost portion of the City of Shoreline, located along Puget Sound.

Its community association prides itself on being “…one of the most inviting, vibrant, scenic, involved and “event-full” neighborhoods in the region.”

The Richmond Beach Saltwater Park, with its scenic walking trails, picnic shelters, and “playground with a view”, is a draw for local residents and visitors alike.

Just north of Innis Arden and south of the outer reaches of Edmonds, Richmond Beach offers an enviable community-filled lifestyle.

Shoreline & Richmond Beach Activities

The Interurban Trail is a 3 mile trail that runs parallel to Aurora Avenue with access to Aurora Village and Shoreline Park & Ride. Two pedestrian bridges are not only utilitarian, they are also part of the public art located on the trail. The “rail-to-shore” concrete patterning on both bridges celebrates Shoreline’s history and proximity to the water.

Richmond Beach Saltwater Park offers breathtaking views, convenient water access and abundant trails. Its Reflex Solaris, an interactive concrete and steel sundial with five stainless steel reflectors, is built into the park’s upper slopes. These reflectors will cast images of the environmental features surrounding them, including the sunlight, clouds, moonlight and Olympic Mountain views. People who stand on the sundial at designated spots can look toward the east at the hillside to see the steel reflectors along the True North, Solstice and Equinox lines.

Shoreview Park is home to the city’s only year round off-leash dog park. It also contains wooded nature areas with trails, picnic tables, play grounds, restrooms, soccer fields, tennis courts and baseball/softball fields. Shoreview Park features plentiful parking and offers a beautiful view of the Olympic Mountains.
