Magnolia is well-known for its natural boundaries and limited through-traffic, giving it an almost island-like quality and one of the lowest crime rates around. Yet Magnolia remains only minutes away from downtown Seattle.
Located on a peninsula west of Queen Anne Hill and south of the Ballard Locks, Magnolia features a range of housing prices and styles. Whether purchasing an upscale contemporary on the bluff or buying your first home, Magnolia is a special place to live.
The area features the Magnolia Community Center, with its weight room, tennis courts, kitchen, meeting rooms, and gym. It also has a number of local parks, including Magnolia Park (located just off Magnolia Boulevard) and Discovery Park. The latter, a 534-acre park, supports four habitats–forest, meadows, saltwater and freshwater–and is kept wild for an urban wilderness experience. All around, Magnolia is a wonderful community in which to live.
