    Bonney lake is a very family oriented location; therefore, if one is living alone, then that person could feel outcasted by the surrounding families. That said, being a family city, it is very safe and easy to drive to places you need to go. However, Bonney Lake is more in the trees and woods but the trees are beginning to be cut down more and more to build houses and businesses. That sucks. The trees used to be homes for animals such as deer and eagles, but now the deer and eagles appear less and less.

    It's a very tight-knit community, everyone knows each other. Some neighborhoods are worse than others. You have the choice of schooling between elementary, middle and high school. (High school needs waiver, and depends on boundaries). There are not a lot of activities to do, however in the summer time, at the public park, they like to hold events that range from children related to the whole community. I personally would not come back because I would like to find something new to discover.

    If I could do it all over again, both my family and I would choose this area every single time. As a family moving from a very sunny state to a now extremely rainy state there has been a exceptional amount of change mainly on weather. Although the atmosphere our neighbors have created for my family and I our phenomenal and I would most certainly stay in this area. When simply walking to the park everyone says hello to us as well as good morning, truly such kind souls.
