The community gathers at Lake Boren Park for a Newcastle Days performance.
A Small Community in the Heart of It All
Ranked as one of the best small towns in America, Newcastle combines the convenience and choices of urban living with the comfort and community of a small town. Located between Bellevue, Renton and the Cougar Mountain area of Issaquah, within the Seattle metropolitan area, Newcastle gives its residents the opportunity for commuting easily to work and returning home to opportunities for outdoor recreation. The city works with volunteers to maintain a uniquely extensive trail system and provides conveniently located parks. Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park is just minutes away.
The diversity of people who choose Newcastle as their home create a truly special atmosphere. A spirit of volunteerism is alive and well here. Volunteer efforts are essential in maintaining and expanding our network of trails, in making events happen and in completing other important projects like those related to historical preservation and habitat restoration. Because the city is small, city staff members are able to know the people they serve enabling a specialized level of service. Newcastle's staff is focused on serving residents as efficiently as possible and improving the quality of life for Newcastle.
Newcastle is a beautiful city with distinct neighborhoods and natural open spaces. Lake Boren Park is a primary attraction due to both its natural beauty and facilities. Lasting memories are created in the park during Concerts in the Park, the Fourth at the Lake celebration and annual Newcastle Days festival held every September to celebrate the city's incorporation.
Newcastle is known throughout the region as being home to a world class golf course, The Golf Club at Newcastle. Standing on the 350-acre golf course feels like standing on top of the world with panoramic views of Lake Washington, Seattle and the surrounding mountains. The Coal Creek YMCA offers various fitness classes and a swimming pool, and a branch of the King County library is located here.
