Located south of Downtown Bellevue, west of I-405 and north or I-90, West Bellevue is home to some of Bellevue’s most established and historic neighborhoods. Bordering on Lake Washington and the Mercer Slough, the neighborhoods are nestled in the wooded beauty of Bellevue’s natural environment. Neighborhoods of Enatai, Bellecrest, Surrey Downs, Killarney Circle and Meydenbauer Point all provide strong neighborhood associations that work to build community and preserve their distinct neighborhood character.
Residents and visitors enjoy the waterfront at Chism Beach, Chesterfield Beach and Enatai Beach, as well as Sweylocken boat launch, providing a place for kayaking and canoeing. The historic Winter’s House provides a glimpse into Bellevue’s past, and trails for birdwatching through the Mercer Slough.
West Bellevue will be served by the South Bellevue light rail station and South Bellevue Park & Ride, providing easy access to Seattle and downtown Bellevue. With close proximity to the Mountains to Sound Greenway, bicyclists enjoy a short trip to Seattle or east to Issaquah.
