It is situated where Highway 522 ends in the west. With a population of around 33,000 residents, Bothell is a decently-sized suburban city. Like many cities located in King County, Bothell is in a central location, making it easy to commute for work to larger cities, such as Seattle, Bellevue and Everett. Residencies range from homes, apartments and condominiums. Most homes are situated in residential neighborhoods, making them quiet and desirable, especially for those with families. Wide, tree-lined streets create a scene of which many only dream. Bothell is a part of the Northshore School District and has one high school, two junior highs and 10 elementary schools.

These factors contribute to Bothells popularity among families. Bothell has much to offer to its residents, including ample opportunity to enjoy fresh air at one of the many parks. One of the most popular and scenic parks in Bothell is Blyth Park. It happens to be Bothells biggest park at over 40 acres and offers many of the great park amenities, such as a play area and picnic tables. It is located along the Sammamish River, which provides river access and nice scenery, and along the Sammamish River Trail, which allows for exercise or a relaxing stroll. The Park at Bothell Landing is also a great park. Though it is much smaller than the first at only a little over 5 acres, it still packs a lot of fun. It too is set along both the Sammamish River and Trail. The Park at Bothell Landing has an amphitheatre which serves as a perfect spot for many of Bothells community events and can also be rented out for private events.
