Renton has spent the last 75 years shaping the aerospace industry, thanks to businesses like Boeing, AIM aerospace, and others. It features large parks, the like Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park on the shores of Lake Washington, and a lively retail district, the Renton Landing. It is currently one of the fastest growing communities in the Puget Sound area, and is just minutes away from downtown Seattle. Renton also knows how to have fun, with events like the Rubber Duck Derby, the Seattle Film Festival, and the Cedar River Dog Park. The community regularly hosts art events, which has resulted in a huge collection of outdoor sculptures and murals from creatives of all ages.
