Totem Lake Park

A rendering of the Totem Lake Park transformation shows a new playground, restrooms and a boardwalk.

The City of Kirkland transformed Totem Lake Park into a recreational centerpiece of the Totem Lake Urban Center. The park opened in July 2021 and features family restrooms, a water bottle filling station, drinking fountains for humans and canines, a community picnic table that's over 48 feet long, and a new accessible-to-all-abilities playground.

The park will also feature a 10-foot-wide boardwalk, to open in late summer 2021, that will connect to the Cross Kirkland Corridor . The large wetland in the center of the park will continue to provide valuable habitat, help filter pollutants, and absorb rainwater. 

Park Donations

Donating funds to a park is a wonderful way to show appreciation for Kirkland, to honor someone special, or to commemorate a milestone. Park benches and tables are the most popular items to donate, however other donations are possible as well, like those for trees or landscape, for general park maintenance, towards public art or other site amenities (i.e. water fountains), and even towards the tools and equipment needed to keep Kirkland’s parks beautiful.
