Burien is part of the ancestral home of Coast Salish peoples and near a crossroads of trade and travel in the central Puget Sound basin. Within Burien, there are landmarks that are celebrated in Coast Salish myths and legends. Generations of immigrants from across the globe have also shaped Burien’s history. Today, our city is a patchwork of 18 neighborhood areas, connected by vital transportation corridors, each an integral part of the fabric that makes up Burien.
To celebrate our community’s efforts to plan for the future of Burien, we are excited to debut the online Burien Neighborhood Map!
