Lake Forest Park was founded in 1912 by Olr Hanson as one of the Seattle area's first planned communities.
The City is located in King County, Washington, at the northern tip of Lake Washington. Its neighbors are the cities of Seattle, Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Brier, and Kenmore.
Envisioned as a picturesque retreat for professionals, the developers planned roads and lots in strict consideration for natural landmarks. Visitors coming to the City from Seattle or Kenmore on Bothell Way still enter the green landscape of hidden homes and winding roads described by Hanson as a recreation paradise.
The lake was the easiest way to get to and from Seattle in the early days. Mosquito Fleet steam boats traveled the shores of Lake Washington all the way up the Sammamish River to Lake Sammamish. Commuting was made easier for budding car owners after the 1912 paving of the two-lane brick highway. Beginning as the nearly impassable Military Telegraph Road, the route had several other incarnations. In 1906 it was christened the Gehr Erickson Road, after the State Representative, a Bothell resident, who created the Good Roads legislation.
