The Shorewood on the Sound Community Club (SOTS CC) is located in the northwest part of Burien Washington and has about 452 households within its boundaries. Ours is a well extablished club that has been active in the community for over 70 years. The By-Laws governing our organization were first drafted shortly after the war, in 1946. The club properties include the Shorewood Community Beach and Boat Ramp, and the many neighborhood trails winding throughout our neighborhood and connecting to the trail system within the extensive surrounding natural areas, parks, and greenbelts.
We have a long tradition in SOTS of community participation and comradery. Click the Annual Events tab above to see some of the things we have been up to.
If you would like to help out with an event (or if you have an idea for a new one) you can contact any Board Member directly or you can click the Contact Us tab above, write a comment, and we will respond to you as quickly as possible.
Individuals or groups have an opportunity to receive some volunteer service hours through the City of Burien, the Environmental Science Center, and the Shorewood on the Sound Community Club by attending Shorewood Community Park Work Parties.
To find out more click on the Get Involved tab above.
The volunteer force boasts many community members – some pulled ivy from an area graced by two Noble Fir trees planted by Fred Henzi 20 years ago, and others planted Coastal Strawberry plants which are a wonderful native groundcover. The project goals are to remove invasive plants and to replace them with native ground cover. Get Involved with Adopt-A-Park.

Anyone know why there's a helicopter flying around the area right now?

Our locked mailbox was broken into last night. It looks like the scumbags tried to break into all the locked mailboxes but was only successful with ours. 29th AVE just South of 116th.

Hello Community Members. Is there a registration process for using the SOTC beach for picnic?

Random box sitting outside our house? It's empty, but could have been remnants of a burglary.... Or the box fairy leaving a present? Message me by Tuesday if you want it or it goes out with the trash.

Happened sometime last night right at our driveway...
on August 20, 2016 07:51

I dont have anything in the car
on August 20, 2016 07:59
Odd- normally the bad guy sees something valuable and then takes it. We just lost $1000 of stuff out of a car a few weeks ago.
on August 20, 2016 08:06
I normally leave my tools in the truck but i emptied it all last night.
on August 20, 2016 11:27
I'm so sorry this happened to you.
on August 20, 2016 11:27
Just met with the police to file a report. Was told they've been busy following up on multiple car break ins at SOTS
on August 20, 2016 14:18
I'm so sorry.
on August 20, 2016 14:46
Where on Shorewood?
on August 20, 2016 14:57
Im at 126th and shorewood. Just found out my neighbors car got broken in too as well.
on August 20, 2016 16:22
Thanks for letting people know (Terry)
on August 20, 2016 16:26
Seems in this "era" we all need cameras, motion lights/alarms, good neighbors with situational awareness (block watch), far better (maybe not more) law enforcement and perhaps the really controversial 'personal protection'....sign of the times....😡

Did you know that we have Shorewood lizards too? We've seen them in the yard on and off for years, but this was the first time our cat brought one inside. Lovely!
on August 19, 2016 10:17
Nice I see them in the rockery 4-5 times a year. (Terry)
on August 19, 2016 14:21
I wish my yard had lizards
on August 19, 2016 16:19
They're all around, you just may not see them. We've had them sneak in the house a time or two.

I had a cat that brought them in constantly. A lot of them would break off their own tails to escape and when Mooch would bring one in many of them had regenerated tails. He never killed them though.
on August 20, 2016 05:56
You'll need to open the picture to see this little cutie. We had a chipmunk for several years but he never came back after the coyotes showed up.
on August 20, 2016 10:47
We have seen them in our yard as well. One was huge!! 😞 no pictures!
on August 20, 2016 11:52
Going back to the wild
on August 20, 2016 08:03
With yet another car prowl overnight - I'd like to know if this was discussed with police at the Night Out gathering a few weeks ago. I unfortunately could not attend. Anyone else go- have any feedback?
