Did you know that living in Renton has a gaggle of perks provided by the city?
There are great parks like Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park, hiking and bike trails like the Cedar River trail, neighborhood picnics, City Center Garage in downtown Renton that has two hours of free parking, an upcoming spring recycle event, microchipping for pets. Say what?
Microchipping normally costs $70 per animal, but the city is offering the service for free to Renton residents thanks to a partnership with the Renton Community Foundation and Eastside Veterinary Associates. Eastside Veterinary Associates (1700 NE 44th St.) will provide the microchipping on a first-come, first-served basis, while funds last. Check-in is 11:30 a.m. from Monday through Friday.
