Kenmore became Washington’s newest city on August 31, 1998, and began conducting its business in an empty storefront in Kenmore Village, a small strip mall on NE 181st ST. One year later, Kenmore officials arranged with Wells Fargo Bank to acquire its former building in the same square, and transformed it into city headquarters.

A new city hall, constructed on the former Northshore Utilities District site on 68th Ave. NE, opened for business in 2010. It includes an art gallery featuring works of local artists, and a skate park on the grounds.

The Town Square and The Hangar community building, directly across 68th AV NE from City Hall, are intended for the use and enjoyment of Kenmore residents and visitors. This facility belongs to the taxpayers of Kenmore and is intended to provide a location free of charge for them to gather, entertain, meet, eat, drink, connect, and just hang out. Included are a coffee shop and restrooms.

To reach our next stop, head east on 181st Street past the Northshore Fire Department. Cross 73rd Avenue NE and keep going straight. Before the road takes a turn to the right, stop at the chain-link fence. Look up and to the left to see the nests in the trees.
