Located just south of Seattle, Burien is a suburban city that became officially incorporated in February of 1996. This King County city is made up of 13.23 square miles and is just 10 miles west of Renton. Some long-time residents still refer to this city as Sunnydale, due to it being the first name given to Burien by the early settler, Mike Kelly. Now a city of nearly 50,000 people, Burien grew to this number after the annexation of North Highline in 2004 after much debate amongst the citizens and city council.
Back in 2009, the downtown Burien area underwent several renovations and has become a flourishing area for businesses and people to enjoy. The new town center includes 70,000 square feet of shopping complexes and more than 400 condominiums with a park and plaza area, as well as underground parking. Many different events are hosted throughout the month that represent the city and welcome involvement for children and adults of all ages.
When it comes to education, the Highline School District serves the city of Burien, along with some Catholic schools being available to those who are interested. The King County Metro operates public transportation services and is convenient for people who want a break from driving themselves to and from their every destination. Lake Burien & Ed Munro Seahurst Park are two beautiful and natural features of the city that are ideal for people wanting to enjoy a more relaxed part of town
