More About Redmond

Residents of Redmond are proud of their town and this community spirit is evident throughout the city. Community participation and planning is higher than most other cities of similar size and local shops and businesses embrace influx of visitors for the cycling events. The park system includes multiple walking and biking trails, many of which are used for the race each year which winds through the city streets.

History

Artifacts found in the area show that Native Americans have lived in the vicinity for over 10,000 years. The first European settlers arrived in the 1870s when Luke McRedmond filed a Homestead Act claim for land in what is now Richmond. Originally named after a local inn, Melrose House, McRedmond ran and was elected to postmaster and successfully changed the name from Melrose to Richmond in 1883.

Redmond quickly grew as the logging and fishing industries of the area needed supplies, goods and services. Merchants sprung up in the city and in 1889 the Seattle Lake Shore & Eastern Railway built a new station in Redmond, trade increased more dramatically. In 1920, Redmond experienced a downturn when Prohibition forced the close of the town’s saloons which had provided significant tax revenues from miners and loggers. Logging was also declining during this time due to the removal of so much of the area’s forests. Fortunately, local residents realized the denuded land was fertile for farming and Redmond because an agricultural center for the region.

With the completion and opening of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge over Lake Washington, Redmond gained access to Seattle and expansion really began. Companies like Microsoft and Nintendo of America made Redmond their headquarters and the town has blossomed into a tech-savvy community.

Things to Do

Centrally located between Seattle and the Sammamish River Valley, Redmond sits at the heart of the region and offers some of the best attractions of the area. Cycling of all kinds is at the heart of the community with extensive bike trails and other cycling opportunities, including clubs and special events. As with other areas of the Pacific Northwest, the natural beauty of the city beckons residents outside to enjoy the fresh air and scenic environment.

From hot air balloons to wine tours, Redmond entertains its guests with a wide variety of entertainment, shopping and dining options. Each year as the city swells with cyclists from around the globe, local restaurants and shops gear up to offer the best the region has to offer with specialty gifts, foods and experiences.

Arts and Culture

Redmond is home to an extensive outdoor public art collection. With over 100 works which include sculpture, fountains, structures and paintings, Redmond has an impressive permanent collection which is carefully preserved for its historic and cultural significance. Two of the most recent installations are Sky Painting and Signals. Sky Painting is now considered the largest painted surface in the state of Washington and features ten-foot rings in alternating blue and yellow designed to draw the viewer’s eye to the patch of adjacent trees. Signals is a site-specific installation by artist John Fleming who used decommissioned train signals to create a structure of steel, colored LED lighting and signals which lights up the evening sky.

Local artists can connect and display their work at VALA, Venues for Artists in the Local Area, located in the Eastside section of Redmond. This non-profit provides the public with a place to experience the creations of local artist from the region. Music lovers can enjoy the summer concert series at Marymoor Park. This 5000 person concert venue welcomes acts from all over each year to delight visitors wanting to hear great music in a beautiful, outdoor setting.

Everything is made, grown or produced in Washington State.

Other popular events hosted by the Redmond Town Center are the annual Arts Festival and the Pacific NW Chalk Fest and Sidewalk Sale which showcases chalk artists from across the Puget Sound region. Other events from winter festivities to a Halloween trick or treat evening provide more community involvement and are just some of the many reasons the center has become part of the community framework of the city.
