bothell waDesignated as the gateway to the research and technology communities that make up Snohomish County’s Technology Corridor, Bothell is a popular business and residential community.

Originally a logging town, incorporated in 1909, Bothell remained a small town in King County until the early 1980s when pastoral farmlands gave way to business parks and residential developments. In 1992 the city annexed 5.9 square miles of land in Snohomish County, doubling the city’s size and population, and establishing its reputation as the location for some of the state’s most creative technology communities. The Canyon Park Business Park currently hosts some of the most renowned names in the bio-medical and high tech fields. Bothell is also home to Washington State’s Biomedical Innovation Partnership Zone.

Current plans call for providing commercial areas which are pedestrian-, bicycle- and transit-oriented, vibrant and inviting by design, and located and sized so as to ensure adequate selection and availability of goods and services for all Bothell residents. A nationally recognized downtown revitalization effort is well underway, with McMenamins Anderson School and multiple fine restaurants adding to the charms of the downtown.

One mile east of downtown is the campus hosting the University of Washington Bothell and Cascadia Community College. UW Bothell is the recipient of numerous national distinctions recognizing its extraordinary value, and its consequent rapid growth. The campus provides a local source of knowledge and talent to corporations thirsty for a skilled workforce.

Bothell residents and visitors enjoy easy access to sporting events in Seattle, Everett, and Bellevue. They can also take advantage of walking, jogging, skating and biking along the Sammamish River Trail and the Burke-Gilman Trail. Next door Woodinville hosts 160 wineries, and numerous restaurants, breweries and distilleries welcome visitors interested in the ambience of the area and the high quality of their products and services.
