"Long residential street near a golf course and schools"

Beginning to the north at S 112th St. with the Glen Acres Country Club/Golf course and ending just after S 136th St., 12th Ave. South is a long residental neighborhood with several single-family homes, churches and a few businesses scattered here and there. The residents enjoy close proximity to several parks, including the North Seatac Park, Arbor Lake Park, Seahurst Park and Salmon Creek Park, all within a 5-minute drive. Locals also have quick access to local highways and interstates for out-of-town trips, or a 20-minute drive to downtown Seattle. The street is generally lined with trees and many of the yards have flower gardens providing some summer color, though there are some bare sections of the street. Mainly residential, the street does not have any stoplights and very few stop signs at its intersections, though traffic is minimal. The area is known for being less-than-desireable due to crime rates, though the surrounding Burien area is doing its best to improve the city with new construction, community activities and an updated look.
