Things To Do In Sammamish
See An Eagle!
Named in 2001 by a second grader at Samantha Smith Elementary School, Soaring Eagle Regional Park is 600 acres of mature forests, wetlands, and wildlife habitat. This natural area provides sanctuary for black bear, bobcat, black tail deer and more than 40 species of birds.
There are twelve miles of trails that are regularly used by hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians. The Pipeline Trail that crosses through the park is wide and flat – in fact, it is quite common to see families with baby strollers out enjoying the trail. Soaring Eagle is also popular for trail running competitions.
Freshly-Brewed Beer Anyone?
Big Block engines made their debut in family cars in the late 50’s and early 60’s long before the muscle car ever hit the streets. Back then, ordering a Big Block motor was rare, expensive and not real great on gas but it made the drive to work or the store just a little bit better, a little faster, a little more fun…. it separated them from the rest and best of all... they did it because they could.This brewery was founded on the same principle.
The brews take a little longer to produce, they cost a little more to make, and they just might be a little more fun. Why do they brew this way? …Because they can. Take one of their brews for a test drive, sit back and enjoy the ride. Cheers!
Beaver Lake Park began as a private resort in the 1930s known as the Four Seasons Resort or Bartel's Resort. The resort was sold in 1950s and was renamed Andy's Beaver Lake Resort. In 1960, the resort was sold to the Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle and used by the Catholic Youth Organization to run Camp Cabrini. The camp operated until 1985 when King County purchased the site for the park now known as Beaver Lake Park. The park was transferred from King County to the City of Sammamish in 2003.
Beaver Lake Park is 83 acres with parking lots located in the north and west with a large forested section and trails located in the middle. Check it out!
