Bryant

Bryant was once a sawmill town that is now a quiet collection of residential, single family homes, and largely upper-middle class families. The neighborhood is sometimes known as Ravenna-Bryant, due to its proximity to Ravenna Park.  A highlight is the community’s access to the Burke-Gilman Trail that runs along the southern and eastern margins of the neighborhood.

Small eateries, neighborhood coffee shops and the University Village shopping facility are all within a pleasant walking distance, with most of the commercial establishments located along NE 55th Street between 25th and 35th Avenues NE.

The eastern Lake Washington side of Ravenna-Bryant has grand beautiful homes with sweeping mountain, territorial and cityscape views.

The community is very supportive of its local public school, Bryant Elementary. Volunteers put in hours of work helping it to be one of Seattle’s largest and most academically successful elementary schools. The after-school program is also very popular in the community, with classes in cultural and ethnic arts, languages, music, and sports. The community also enjoys Bryant Playgroundfilled with open spaces, basketball hoops, tennis courts, and a fantastic play area.
