KIRKLAND, Wash. – A February 14 open house at City Hall will give residents the opportunity to weigh-in on a variety of improvements planned for Totem Lake Park. Features could include play structures, seating and picnicking areas, trails and wetland boardwalks, as well as the potential for an interactive sprayground or water play area.
The drop-in style open house begins at 5:30 p.m. and ends when the Kirkland Park Board begins its meeting at 7 p.m. inside the City Council Chambers.
The renovation of Totem Lake Park is fundamental to the redevelopment of the Totem Lake Urban Center, a neighborhood Kirkland’s leaders are preparing to accommodate 4,000 new homes—most of them apartments or condominiums in mixed-use buildings—and 6,000 new jobs by 2035.
Totem Lake Park will serve as the ecological centerpiece and recreation destination of the walkable, vibrant urban village in development now. Park improvements are scheduled for construction in 2019.
