What Renters Like and Dislike About Yarrow Point

I like that it's downtown, yet not as busy as the bigger cities nearby. Lots of shops and places to eat, things to do, etc. also a great neighborhood to walk in which is important to ms

Close to freeway and it's next to a grocery stores like Costco and Safeway. Close to other cities and major tech companies.

I can walk to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and coffee. Movie theaters are close. I love very close to the freeway but far enough that I don't hear it.

Schools are really good, with high ratings. There are also nearby parks and playgrounds, which is really good. There is also a Nearby tennis cuart we like to go to.

well established neighborhood with lots of outdoor activities possible and very low road traffic make it a nice walking experience

All About

Living in Yarrow Point, WA

For those who work in the city, renting an apartment in tree-filled Yarrow Point can allow for a gentle escape while still leaving residents close enough to the Emerald City - just five minutes from downtown - to take advantage of all of the attractions it offers as well.

The town itself occupies just 231 acres, but with an estimated population of just over 1,000 residents, it doesn't get too crowded. The town says that a full quarter of homes in the area have waterfront access, while others who rent Yarrow Point apartments have views of Lake Washington, which surrounds the small peninsula on three sides.

The nearby Yarrow Bay wetlands also offer Yarrow Point apartment residents a view of a unique habitat. According to the Seattle Times, the wetlands were originally created back in 1916, when the Chittenden Locks in Ballard dropped the water level in Lake Washington - creating wetlands in areas that used to be underwater.

The area is also less well-known than some other waterfront parks, such as Kirkland's Juanita Bay Park, the paper reports, although recent developments have helped make it more accessible. A number of Yarrow Point apartments and offices are located in the surrounding area, and a trail to the wetlands now leaves from Points Drive, allowing residents to leave the sounds of the city behind and catch a peek at some of the area's unique wildlife, including herons, beavers and many different types of aquatic life.
