KIRKLAND, Wash. – While the November 2023 parks ballot measure did not pass, the City Council and staff continue to hear that expanding swim opportunities is still important to the Kirkland community. The City is working to understand and balance community needs and priorities for community pools in Kirkland.

To support this, the City has published an online survey related to the Parks Prop 1 measure from November 2023 and the community's needs and desires related to a community pool. Community members can access the survey at now through Monday, February 26 at 8 a.m.

In addition to the survey, the City is hosting three small-group feedback sessions on February 26, 27, and 28, regarding the 2023 Proposition 1 ballot measure. The intent of these sessions is to understand the reasons community members supported or opposed the measure. These sessions will be held in-person at Kirkland City Hall, and interested community members can sign up to attend at

Feedback from the community survey and feedback sessions will help inform the City Council's decision on whether to continue to explore a community pool as they work to balance community needs and priorities.
