GET TO KNOW Renton
Renton, one of our neighboring towns to the south. Once one of the big boom towns in the Puget Sound region because of the coal industry. Becoming part of the boom-and-bust cycle of Boeing. Whose factories and HQ are located in and around it. Naturally, there are many diverse neighborhoods within Renton. As a whole, it is still very much a commuter town. One that requires a car in most cases. Old Renton's core of retail and dining sets itself apart from the large shopping center, The Landing. Renton is still defining itself as it grows and absorbs new populations. It already has some wonderfully unique features already. The Renton Library straddles the Cedar River. You can look down through its large windows and see the salmon making their way upstream in the autumn. Then go see the fall colors in the adjacent Liberty Park.
