Finn Hill

I grew up on Finn Hill when there were no fences between houses, grass higher than my head grew in the fields behind our house, and neighbors risked picking blackberries around the old farmhouse where kids said a lady with a shotgun sat watching. All that got filled in with new houses. Still, the area preserves some nice parks as ones sees throughout the Eastside. You can thank my mother for the guardrail along NE 131st Way. Cars used to fly right off that hill until she got a petition together. The Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance continues that tradition of community involvement.

Neighborhood highlights:

  • Sandburg Elementary - Sandburg has an active music program. The music department of Juanita High School help out with music lessons leading students into orchestra. The Sandburg choir recently had 65 participants and performs around the community. The building also houses the Discovery Community School, a K-5 cooperative choice school. The Discovery school sponsors many unique, parent-led activities.
  • Thoreau Elementary - Home of the Frogs! This is the elementary school I attended. The school was built on a swamp - thus the frog mascot. The school is highly rated on
  • Big Finn Hill Park -
  • Big Finn Hill Park is a great place for hikers dog walkers mountain bikers and families. With a baseball field and play area. Owls, hawks, eagles and deers can be spotted.
