The play area provide a place where children and adults of all abilities can play.
Kirkland's City Council adopted the Totem Lake Park Master Plan on Dec. 10, 2013.
Its transformation is one of several City of Kirkland efforts to maximize the quality of life and the economic potential of Kirkland's only urban center.
Totem Lake Park is a 17-acre site located in the heart of the Totem Lake Urban Center. Owned by the King Conservation District and co-managed by the City of Kirkland, the lake has been known by several names over the years--Lake Wittenmyer, Mudd Lake--but became known as Totem Lake in 1973 after the opening of the nearby shopping mall. The Park is comprised primarily of wetlands. The lake itself encompasses about four acres of the property.
