Originally the fancy part of Lake City with vacation homes overlooking Lake Washington, Cedar Park is normally understood as the residential neighborhood going from 35th Ave NE to Lake Washington between NE 120th & NE 145th. (The official Seattle City Clerk’s Neighborhood Map include the commercial strip on the east side of Lake City Way as well.) The Cedar Park Neighborhood Council is the local community organization.
Cedar Park is the local playground and play area. There are no public schools in the neighborhood with elementary students going south to John Rogers Elementary, middle school students served by Eckstein and high school students going to Nathan Hale.
The Burke Gilman Trail follows the Lake Washington shoreline for walkers and bikers. The 306 &312 express routes serve downtown commuters along Lake City Way (20-25 minutes) while the 64 takes the more scenic route along 35th (35 min). The 41 and 75 connect to Northgate. Access to the UW is provided by the 72 & 372 along Lake City Way (15-20 min) and 65 along 35th (20-25 min).
For Real Estate searches make sure to include Lake City and possibly Matthews Beach when attempting to locate homes in Cedar Park.
