Lakemont
Lakemont Community Info –

Lakemont is a planned community located primarily within the City of Bellevue with easternmost areas in the City of Issaquah. The Lakemont Community Association governs the neighborhoods, parks & trails within this community and Lakemont’s homes benefit from community-owned greenbelts and a pedestrian trail system connects residents to neighborhood parks, the regional Cougar Mountain Park and neighborhood shopping center at Lakemont. The neighborhood is served by the Issaquah School District.

Located just off Interstate 90 along the north face of Cougar Mountain, Lakemont enjoys easy access to both Bellevue and Seattle. The higher elevation of the Lakemont region takes in the incredible views over Lake Sammamish and the Cascade Mountains to the east and downtown Bellevue, Lake Washington and Seattle to the west. This scenic region is adjacent to natural, untamed stretches of countryside. While cougars are rare, it isn’t unusual for residents to spot raccoons, opossums, deer – or even an occasional bear – taking an early morning stroll through the neighborhood. Local parks include Cougar Mountain Regional Park, Lewis Creek Park, Lakemont Park, Lakemont Highlands Park, Lattawood Park, Collingwood Park, and Forest Ridge Park
