Parks and Recreation:
Lake Sammamish and Issaquah’s Lake Sammamish State Park offer water recreation. There are many hiking trails and scenic woods around the housing developments. There are five major city parks: Beaver Lake Park, Pine Lake Park, NE Sammamish Park, East Sammamish Park, and Ebright Creek Park. Parks being planned in the recently incorporated city include Soaring Eagle Park and the Sammamish Commons. The East Lake Sammamish Trail, opened in April 2006, connects to a regional trail system. A skatepark is located adjacent to the Sammamish City hall, across from Skyline High School.
The first phase of Sammamish Commons, a city center project comprising City Hall, recreation facilities, and a police station was opened in late 2006. The King County Library System relocated the Sammamish Library to the site in January 2010. The city government and YMCA have recently been in talks to create a community aquatic center at the Commons site as well.
Sammamish is home to two private golf clubs: the Plateau Club, and Sahalee Country Club, which hosted the 1998 PGA Championship and the 2002 World Golf Championship-NEC Invitational.
