In 1871, Susan Woodin and her husband moved from Seattle and headed north where they built a log cabin along the Sammamish River. A small community eventually formed around them, and their home served as the town’s first school and post office. Woodinville is part of the Seattle metropolitan area and has countless parks right on the shoreline of the Sammamish River, gorgeous fields of winery and brewery grounds, and neighborhoods surrounded by densely wooded forests.
There are over 12,000 people living in Woodinville, and nearly 5,000 households within the city limits. The majority of Woodinville is served by the Northshore School District, but some of the southwestern parts of the city lie within the Lake Washington School District. Between the two school districts there are 8 high schools, 13 middle schools, and 50 elementary schools. There are also multiple private and choice schools offered.
Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery
Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery is Washington State's oldest winery, having been founded in 1954. Beyond the perimeter of the winery lies over 100 acres of wooded forests. The winery itself is comprised of unique Victorian-style architecture. The winery owns multiple estate vineyards throughout Eastern Washington and produces over 8 million cases of wine every year. Annual concerts are also held on the winery grounds.
Adventura is an aerial adventure park where climbers encounter obstacles in their environment that challenge their climbing, jumping, and swinging skills. Participants must maintain balance at heights of up to 50 feet above the ground. This experience provides visitors with both team building skills and aerial course adventures!
Celebrate Woodinville Summer Concerts & Festival
This annual festival brings the Woodinville residents together for family-friendly entertainment to celebrate the close community ties and support the city’s wineries, breweries, and local businesses. Celebrate Woodinville is entirely free to the public and hosts events and activities such as live concerts, local vendors serving amazing food, beer and wine gardens, and even a parade! Possibly the most popular part of the festival is the Basset Bash – a contest for basset hounds with prizes awarded for characteristics like best waddle, best howl, and longest ears.
Wilmot Gateway Park
As Woodinville's first public park, Wilmot Gateway has a kids’ playground, public art and walking trails along the Sammamish River. The park is used for many community activities such as the Celebrate Woodinville Summer Concert Series and the annual city staff Wellness 5K.
