Situated on a peninsula jutting out into Lake Washington is the much sought after neighborhood of Laurelhurst. Once a seasonal campground of the Duwamish Tribe, today the area is comprised of large, stately, and well manicured homes, many with panoramic views of the Lake and Mt. Rainier. Laurelhurst is convenient to the University of Washington, the University Village Shopping Center, and Children’s Hospital. Laurelhurst Park and Community Center serves as a gathering place, offering programs and special events.
