Edith Moulton Park Master Plan
The City of Kirkland assumed ownership of Edith Moulton Park from King County in 2011 following annexation of the north Juanita neighborhood. Edith Moulton originally donated the 26-acre property to King County in 1967. Her dream was for her family homestead to be used as “a place for children to play in nature”. This vision has been a guiding principle for the master planning effort for the park.
The existing park property is heavily wooded and dissected by Juanita Creek. Current amenities include trails, a small picnic shelter, a lawn/open play area, and fencing.
Funding for master planning and improvements for Edith Moulton Park comes from the voter-approved 2012 Kirkland Parks Levy. Total project budget for planning and construction has been approved in the amount of $1,000,000.
A park master plan was approved in 2015. Design and permitting tasks are currently underway, with construction anticipated in 2016.
