History

The history of this young city is very rich. The start of the town was back in 1890 when the Richmond Beach was formed on Puget Sound. The launch of the city was further extended by a number of new throughways, including what is now Aurora Ave, or Highway 99 as well as the rail link and the Seattle-Everett Streetcar. The name originally went to just the school house but eventually was the entire suburb. The name was given because at the time, the borders of the town went from shore to shore; from the Puget Sound to Lake Washington and while the borders did not stay that way, the name stuck. The 2nd part of the name came from the rail link and highways that were implemented soon after the town began. In 1995, residents were able to use the actual city name as part of their address which was until that time, part of the Seattle city limits.

Parks and Recreation

The parks and rec department ran by the city is chopped full of activities for people of all ages. If you want to learn about the offerings the department has to offer, you can download the seasonal guide at www.cityofshoreline.com.
