An important message from Parks & Community Services
Update (7/30/2020) 

More information on items below and on what is currently open under the Governor’s Safe Start plan can be found at:

Kirkland's Community Open Small Group Activity at Lee Johnson Outfield will occur daily from 6 pm - 11 pm. See link above for more information.

Senior hours are offered at Juanita Bay Park, 132nd Square Park, Everest Park, Edith Moulton Park and Spinney Homestead Park on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 am - 10 am through Labor Day.

The City of Kirkland will not have Lifeguards on duty  this summer, but will have staff on site to hand out life-jackets in the event someone needs one.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Beach Ambassador position is being implemented to engage and educate park users about health directives, provide city issued life- jackets to patrons, perform beach cleanup, walks, City and Department policies, and available services and resources. The Beach Ambassador position gives the Parks and Community Services Department an opportunity to promote community safety and bridge communication between park users, City Leadership, and our Department.
