UPDATES & INFORMATION
Update (May 20, 2020) - The City received one bid for the project by the May 4 deadline. That bid was rejected. Staff are developing new plans. The project is on hold for the time being.
The City of Kirkland in partnership with Kirkland Rotary will erect a 576-square-foot picnic pavilion alongside the Cross Kirkland Corridor, on the former site of a Northern Pacific Railway train depot. Kirkland Rotary is contributing over $30,000 for the purchase of a pre-fabricated 16-foot by 36-foot pavilion. It will sit on the concrete foundation of the former train depot, west of the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Kirkland Avenue. Volunteers have removed invasive plant species adjacent to the site. Later they will install native vegetation.
July 2019: Council approves funding for the pavilion
September 2019 - May 2020: Kirkland staff design and plan for the pavilion
TBD: Contractor installs the pavilion and volunteers plant native vegetation
