Location of Federal Way, Washington

Federal Way is a city located in King County, Washington, United States. Federal Way is an edge city between Seattle and Tacoma. It is located on Puget Sound. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 83,259. The population including surrounding unincorporated areas exceeds 110,000.

Originally a logging settlement, the area was first called "Federal Way" in 1929, when Federal Way School District #210 was created. The name derived from U.S. Highway 99 (now Washington State Route 99), completed that decade, which ran through the area on its way from Everett and Seattle to Tacoma and Olympia. Two years later, Federal Way High School was built, and about 20 years later, the name was adopted by the local Chamber of Commerce. The city incorporated on February 28, 1990.

Federal Way is home to Weyerhaeuser, the largest private owner of softwood timberland in the world. Weyerhaeuser has opened much of its land to the public, including two minor attractions: their Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden and the Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection.

Other attractions in the city include the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center, which features an Olympic size swimming pool, and Celebration Park, with generous sports fields and wooded trails. The city has also developed many lakefront and neighborhood parks and playgrounds. Wild Waves Enchanted Village, on the south side of town, is the Seattle area's only permanent amusement park and the only Six Flags park in the Pacific Northwest.

Federal Way is locally identified by its glut of 1990s semi-urban development, characterized by landscaped off-street multi-structure apartment complexes and shopping centers. The Commons at Federal Way (previously Sea Tac Mall), the city's largest and only indoor shopping center, is located on S 320th St. and Pacific Hwy South (Hwy 99) near the city's main Interstate 5 exit.

With encouragment from King County, Federal Way has investigated the options of annexing the unincorporated neighborhoods between its east border and the Auburn Hills, most of which identify with and are dependent upon the city. (Other bordering neighborhoods in this area, such as Milton, have opted to self-incorporate.) In 2004, the city agreed to add the North Lake, East Redondo, and Parkway neighborhoods to its territory.

Major city and state parks:

Steel Lake Park - located on S 312th St just east of Pacific Hwy South; large lakefront area with picnic areas, playground, and boat launch.

Celebration Park - on 11th Ave S just south of S 320th St; with sports fields and wooded trails.

Dash Point State Park - on Dast Point Road at the west end of town; the city's only developed waterfront park, with hiking trails and campground.

Five Mile Lake - on Military Road and South 364th Street in the unincorporated area on the east side of town.

West Hylebos Wetlands Park - at S 348th St and 4th Ave S, hiking trails through wetlands.
