Located to the east of Puyallup and Sumner and the gateway to Mount Rainier National Park, Bonney Lake is home to over 17,000 residents. With access to three lakes (Lake Tapps, Lake Debra Jane and Ascent Park) there is plenty of opportunity for fishing, swimming and boating. The Mount Rainier National Park offers biking, trails, ball fields and plenty of recreational activities for outdoor enthusiasts.
Bonney Lake really began to develop after Ken Simmons spearheaded the development of key infrastructure projects starting in 1946 with a coop electricity venture. He spearheaded the incorporation of the city in 1949 and within a year the city had roads, clean water, refuse disposal and phone lines. By 1965 the population had grown to 1200 and today has over 17,000 residents.
There is easy access to Seattle and Tacoma as well as Sea-Tak Airport via route 410. You can also connect to the Sounder Train in Sumner via the Bonney Lake Park & Ride Transit Center.
Bonney Lake is a lovely community on the shores of its namesake landmark, a large (former hydroelectric) reservoir fed by the White River.
Views of Mt. Rainier from the lake are spectacular, easily disbelieved until seen in person. The surrounding countryside is both residential and agricultural in character.
Sitting on the boundary between rural northern Pierce County and urbanizing south King County, this community exudes an easy-going, comfortable character.
Growth has been steady over the past 20 years, since access to King County (Seattle-area) jobs is a bit easier than from these points farther south along Interstate 5. Indeed, most workers in the community’s 18,000+ population travel to the Tacoma or Seattle-area markets for work. Sounder trains travel between Lakewood and Seattle making stops in South Tacoma, Tacoma, Puyallup, Sumner, Auburn, Kent and Tukwila.
For those who usually see only the I-5 corridor, this community is a real surprise. You owe yourself a visit here.
When it comes to purchasing a home, whether it is a first or second vacation home or retirement home Bonney Lake has a great variety of real estate to choose from accommodating many different budgets. You can choose from Lakeside, Hillside, Mountain views and secluded views. For more information about Bonney Lake you can visit the main city website:
