Sitting at the north end of Lake Washington, the community of Lake Forest Park is a lush woods environment that has been designated a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation.
Apartment renters committed to staying "green" and protecting the environment will feel right at home in Lake Forest Park, where the natural beauty inspires its residents to appreciate it properly.
Community members participate in various commissions that are dedicated to projects ranging from city planning to environmental quality to community services. Through their participation in these commissions, Lake Forest Park apartment tenants are able to shape their community and maintain its scenery.
The Lake Forest Park Annual Earth Smart Fair provides a unique opportunity for residents to learn about and work to protect the town’s natural landscape. Formerly known as "Dig It!," the fair offers a number of workshops in which Lake Forest Park apartment renters can participate.
These workshops can include seminars on how to grow a home vegetable garden, how to maintain a garden that respects the natural wildlife and how to preserve various fruits and vegetables during the winter months.
The event also offers visitors a free aluminum water bottle, vegetable seeds, reusable shopping bags and other useful, "green" gifts.
The fair takes place in Third Place Commons, which serves as a gathering place for community residents and is a central point of reference for new apartment tenants in Lake Forest Park. The event is sponsored by the city and Friends of Third Place Commons with funds from the King County Local Hazardous Waste Program.
