Serving as the home base for Higgason Construction, Sammamish is a city renowned for its breathtaking natural landscape.
Located on a plateau, Sammamish is a relatively new city; for much of King County’s history, the city remained unincorporated, with the first settlers only arriving in the late 19th century. However, the city has flourished over the past 200 years, primarily as a suburban environment that proved popular with families.From its rather quiet beginnings, Sammamish has now grown to a city of considerable size, with a population of 64,548 according to a 2017 census estimate.
The natural glory of Sammamish cannot be underestimated. To the east, the city is bordered by the incredible Snoqualmie Valley, which includes the picturesque Snoqualmie Falls. To the west, Sammamish is bordered by the aptly-named Lake Sammamish, a beautiful lake known for providing a wide range of watersports, ranging from rowing to tubing to jet skiing, while the East Lake Sammamish Trail connects to a wider trail system across the region. Sammamish Lake is also host to many annual gatherings.
In addition to the bordering natural features, Sammamish is also known for its parks. There are nine parks in total, including Beaver Lake Park, Pine Lake Park, and Creek Park. Residents are also able to visit one of three golf courses in the area, as well as a range of strip malls and amenities that are spread throughout the city.
Along with its beautiful surrounding scenery, Sammamish has also gained a reputation as one of the best cities in which to live in the USA. In 2012, Forbes ranked Sammamish at number one in its list of the Friendliest Towns in the United States, which reflects extremely well on both the city and its residents. Furthermore, Sammamish has also been named at the fifth safest city in the US, the 11th best place in the US, and the ninth best place to live by Money Magazine. Many of these accolades have been spread out across the best part of a decade, confirming Sammamish’s place as a consistent, high-performer where residents can be sure of an outstanding quality of life.
