Brightwater Center is located near Bothell and Woodinville in Snohomish County.

Open to the public since September 2011, the Brightwater Center features:

  • 70 acres of public open space with three miles of walking trails and 40 acres of natural habitat;
  • A community center with rentable meeting rooms for the public;
  • A clean water learning space featuring learning opportunities in both indoor and outdoor settings.

Throughout the four-year Brightwater siting process, the public repeatedly asked King County to include these features as part of treatment plant design to ensure the new facility would be a good neighbor and an asset to its host community. Learn about our vision and mission.
