With 23 parks and 17 miles of developed trails, Redmond draws recreationalists to catch youth soccer action at Sixty Acres, saddle up at a local stable for a trail trot, or take a pedal-powered spin along the paved 10.9-mile Sammamish River Trail, framed by river, valley, Cascade foothills and Mount Rainier views. Come summer, 95th Court neighbors make a date to pop into downtown Redmond – self-proclaimed Bicycle Capital of the Northwest – for the annual Derby Days party-palooza of parades, bicycling events and carnival festivities. By day’s end, the event becomes an all-ages patchwork quilt of friends and families mesmerized by a fireworks extravaganza.
Lifting a toast comes easy at 95th Court, where neighbors are minutes away from surrounding Redmond’s renowned wineries and brewhouses – from tony Chateau Ste. Michelle to the pub-grub style of Red Hook Brewery. Even closer to home: three of multi-award-winning Lake Washington School District’s original schools: Redmond Elementary, Redmond Junior High and Redmond High – all within walking distance.
