About Leschi, Wa

Leschi is a neighborhood located in Seattle, Washington, United States. It is situated on the eastern shores of Lake Washington and is named after Chief Leschi, a prominent Native American leader of the Nisqually tribe. Leschi is known for its beautiful natural surroundings, stunning lake views, and diverse community.

The neighborhood of Leschi is primarily residential, with a mix of single-family homes, apartments, and condominiums. The area offers a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere, making it an attractive place to live for those who prefer a quieter setting while still being close to the amenities of the city.

One of the notable features of Leschi is Leschi Park, a waterfront park that spans approximately 20 acres. The park offers scenic walking trails, picnic areas, a playground, and a public boat ramp. It provides residents and visitors with opportunities for outdoor activities, such as jogging, cycling, or simply enjoying the picturesque views of Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains.

Leschi also has a small commercial district along Lakeside Avenue, where you can find a variety of local businesses, including restaurants, cafes, boutique shops, and professional services. The neighborhood has a strong sense of community, and there are often local events and festivals that bring residents together.

In terms of transportation, Leschi is well-connected to the rest of Seattle. Several bus routes serve the area, providing easy access to downtown Seattle and other neighboring communities. Additionally, the neighborhood has convenient access to major roadways, including Interstate 90, which connects to the broader Seattle metropolitan area.

Overall, Leschi offers a combination of natural beauty, a close-knit community, and proximity to the urban amenities of Seattle. Its waterfront location and serene atmosphere make it an appealing place to live for those seeking a balance between city living and natural surroundings.

A Day Filled with Fun, Art, and Innovation.
