Neighbors make a point of indulging in the annual Bellevue Strawberry Festival each June in the nearby Crossroads community, and strolling through the media mix at July’s Festival of the Arts near downtown Bellevue. This annual summer arts escapade invites Juniper Ridge neighbors to linger over Bellevue Square-area sidewalk chalk masterpieces and engaging glass-blowing artisans. It’s part of the same family of traditions as downtown’s elaborate winter Magic Season – an extravaganza of ice skating under an open-air tent; a half-million lights sparkling throughout Main Street’s breathtaking Bellevue Botanical Garden; and a spirited nightly parade along Bellevue Way, featuring dozens of live drumming toy soldiers, dazzling lights and the romance of falling “snow.”
With many of the region’s most popular parks just minutes from their front door, Juniper Ridge neighbors never struggle with free time. Leisure and recreation options abound in all directions. There’s an undeniable neighborhood feel along the walking trails of Woodridge Water Tower Park. To explore Bellevue’s favorite waterfront sanctuary, walk the 7 miles of trails looping throughout nearby Mercer Slough Nature Park, Lake Washington’s largest freshwater water wetlands and the city’s largest park, complete with a canoe launch and water route, blueberry farm and picnic areas.
