Bothell's North Creek neighborhood is an urban treasure, where expansive wetlands,
walking trails and plentiful bird-watching sites offer respite from everyday busyness.
North Creek is also a place for education, innovation and business.
Nestled in the wetlands, over 50 campus acres are shared by the
University of Washington Bothell and Cascadia Community College, two schools that
offer high-quality educational opportunities.
North Creek is also the headquarters for the Northshore School District.
The region has played a major part in the economic growth that has taken place in Bothell.
It is home to three business parks, Bothell's resident office supply store, Staples,
and the production facility for The Seattle Times. Three North Creek hotels -
Country Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites and the Residence Inn -
offer excellent amenities, top-notch service and the perfect place to lodge
for your next "staycation." Be sure to stop in at Russell's Dining & Bar,
a neighborhood gem tucked away in a refurbished barn,
which offers first-rate cuisine and a full-service bar and lounge.
Recreational fun abounds in North Creek with the trails, outdoor sports fields and,
a family favorite, the city's YMCA. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year,
the Northshore YMCA features two gymnasiums, racquetball courts,
an indoor track, a youth center, nursery and large aquatic area.
