Old Bellevue is a quiet enclave just west of the downtown area. Bellevue Downtown Park anchors the neighborhood, providing outdoor amenities and a green buffer zone to shield the community from Downtown Bellevue and Interstate 405. Neighboring communities include Medina and North Bellevue.
The 20-acre Bellevue Downtown Park offers walking paths, shade trees and a waterfall feature that cascades into a reflecting pool. The park also includes a picturesque picnic area, a children's playground and a formal garden. For access to waterfront recreation, residents need only go to Meydenbauer Beach Park with its 3.5 acres of beach area, a fishing dock and picnic areas. Main Street in Old Bellevue is dotted with upscale shops, varied dining choices and one-of-a-kind boutiques. However, the area has preserved its old world charm with historically accurate streetscape features such as old style lampposts.
Old Bellevue and its neighboring communities have much to celebrate annually. Summer kicks off with a Strawberry Festival in June followed by Fourth of July celebrations a few weeks later. The Bellevue Art Museum ARTSfair is a prestigious event held annually and in conjunction with the Bellevue Festival of the Arts and the 6th Street Fair. Residents of Old Bellevue look forward to the traditional holiday festivities with Magic Season events, which include ice skating, a festival of lights and live performances at The Theater at MeydenbauerCenter.
