Lake Forest Park In A Nutshell

True to its name, Lake Forest Park is a wooded residential area adjacent to the northwest corner of Lake Washington. Many homes here have views of the lake, and there is a small section of waterfront properties, all in a park-like setting.


Lake Forest Park began as a logging community in the late 1800's, and was platted by real estate developer Ole Hanson in approximately 1910. Hanson named the area "Lake Forest Park" in order to draw prospective residents to the pristine natural landscape. Lake Forest Park incorporated as a city in 1961 in order to help preserve its community identity.
