Federal Way is a city in King County, Washington, United States. Federal Way is a bedroom community located between Seattle and Tacoma. Its western boundary is Puget Sound. It is bordered by Des Moines on the north, Kent, unincorporated King County, and Milton on the east and Tacoma and Fife on the south. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 83,259. The population estimates for 2005 are 85,800 making it Washington's 7th largest city. Despite sharing a border with Tacoma, Federal Way is usually considered part of the Seattle metropolitan area rather than a suburb of Tacoma.

Federal Way is home to Weyerhaeuser, the largest private owner of softwood timberland in the world. Weyerhaeuser has opened much of its land to the public, including two fine botanical gardens: the Rhododendron Species Foundation and Botanical Garden, and the Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection. Federal Way is also home to the US office headquarters of World Vision.

Other attractions in the city include the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center, which features an Olympic size swimming pool, and Celebration Park, with generous sports fields and wooded trails. The city has also developed many lakefront and neighborhood parks and playgrounds. Wild Waves Enchanted Village, on the south side of town, is the Seattle area's only permanent amusement park. Six Flags purchased Wild Waves Enchanted Village in December 2000, becoming its first and only park in the Pacific Northwest.
