Mountlake Terrace is a friendly and welcoming community with a diverse population of 21,980 residents. Mountlake Terrace is halfway between the major employment centers of Seattle and Everett along the I-5 corridor.

Our popular Recreation Pavilion offers indoor swimming and a lazy river. Our community encompasses nine neighborhood parks, three sports complexes, and 14 sports fields. Lakeview Trail connects the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center to the regional Interurban Trail. In between are all the amenities of Ballinger Park.

Not only are we just five miles from Puget Sound, Mountlake Terrace is within 100 miles of six national parks, forests and mountains.
