Coal mines, timber farming, and railroads paved the way for Newcastle, Washington. Newcastle, an Eastside city in King County, was only recently incorporated in 1994. Although the city is relatively new, Newcastle served as a settlement since the latter part of the 19th century. Since its birth from settlement to city, Newsweek rated Newcastle in its top 20 U.S. places to live in 2009. To further substantiate that claim, CNN Money, in 2011, rated Newcastle in the top 20 of best places to live in the U.S. The small community of around 11,000 residents is connected with continuously developing park and trail systems, constructed primarily by volunteers.
Neighborhoods tucked into Newcastle include Hazelwood, Lake Washington Ridge, Newport Hills, Newport Woods, and West Olympus.
In addition to its coal mines, forested areas, and railroads, Newcastle is imbued with the beauty of Coal Creek, which flows through the city from the Issaquah Alps to Lake Washington. While the community may be petite, it super-sizes its fun with arts, recreation, serene retreats, adrenaline-rushed adventure, and a variety of dining experiences to tempt your taste buds. Among the area’s favorite venues is The Golf Club at Newcastle, the premier golf course in the Pacific Northwest set on 350 acres of hilltop. The facility is home to tournaments, banquets, and special events against a glorious backdrop of beauty.
Issaquah School District and Renton School District share the responsibility of educating students in Newcastle, which they do through Hazelwood Elementary, Newcastle Elementary, Maywood Middle School, McKnight Middle School, Liberty Sr. High, and Hazen High school.
