Welcome to Federal Way

Centered on Visitor Opportunity 

Located along the Puget Sound Inlet and shadowed by the majestic Mount Rainier in the Seattle Tacoma metro area, we are the "Family Friendly" community - great for leisure and business travelers alike.

There’s plenty of fun for everyone in Federal Way. Our city is host to the largest theme park in Washington: Wild Waves and Enchanted Village. It is also the location of the King County Aquatic Center where you can enjoy the same pool that swimming and diving Olympians use to train and compete. The aquatic center has hosted the US Olympic Trials for diving in 2000, 2012, and will hopefully again in 2020. With ongoing local music, theater, arts, and community events, our visitors have plenty of entertainment to choose. 

Federal Way is a community steeped in natural beauty.  Our city is home to lush gardens, from the nationally renowned Pacific Bonsai Museum to the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden to the seasonal garden of PowellsWood. While here, you can also enjoy our vista of the Olympic Mountain range while you walk along the waterfront. Our aromatic fir trees combined with the beauty of our native ornamentals and breathtaking views makes our community uniquely magnificent.
