The Planning Committee put a lot of work into determining the boundaries that would define the Creative District following the criteria for official designation by the Washington State Arts Commission, which require that the map must be contiguous and walkable. The map developed by the committee has a central focus on the downtown core of Burien, but also includes the culturally-important Boulevard Park neighborhood in the northern part of the city.

The map below shows the borders of the Creative District. If you view the map ful size you can turn on the locations of public art or arts related people, businesses, and organizations.
