What makes Shoreline and its residents healthy? Obesity and its related diseases, such as diabetes, have significant impacts on the health of many communities in Washington and across the nation. However, through years of research the elements of a healthy community are well understood. They include:
1. Having access to and eating healthy foods:
- Shoreline Farmers Market, open mid-June through early October
- Cooking and healthy eating classes available through the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (Recreation Guide)
- Community Gardens at Twin Ponds Park and Sunset School Park
- Funding for Meals on Wheels program
- Funding for "lunches for seniors" program at the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center
- Funding for Hopelink to provide nutritious food at the local food bank.
2. Getting enough exercise:
- Million STEP Challenge - During the month of May, residents are challenged to log one million steps around the path at Paramount Park
- Million STAIR Challenge - Residents are challenged to log three million steps on the stairs at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park in the month of June
- Monster Mash Dash 5k - An annual costumed 5k family fun run/walk along the Interurban Trail. Monster Mash Dash takes place in October.
- Recreation guide listing all currents classes, recreation and aquatic programs
- Shoreline Walks - a volunteer-led community walking program for active adults
- Shoreline parks
- Shoreline Pool
- Athletic field rental/reservation
- Pool and gymnasium rental/reservation
- Bike lane map
3. Physically building a community that supports residents’ exercise and walking:
4. Well-organized partnerships between community organizations that promote and provide for healthy lifestyle choices. Partner organizations:

In 2010, the City Council asked staff to develop a Healthy City Strategy. The Healthy City Strategy highlights the efforts and investments being made by the City of Shoreline and by partner organizations to further the City's Healthy City goal. The Strategy outlines a work plan of specific activities and partnerships the City will undertake to support Shoreline residents in becoming healthier.
