Kirkland is a suburb of Seattle located on the Eastside (of Lake Washington). Features of the city include the unique downtown waterfront (the only Eastside downtown frontage along Lake Washington’s shoreline), with restaurants, art galleries, a 400 seat performing arts center, public parks, including beaches, and a collection of private art, primarily bronze sculptures.
Surrounding downtown, are Kirkland’s distinct neighborhoods, including the Lakeview, Central Houghton, Everest, Moss Bay, Bridle Trails, South Rose Hill, Norkirk, Highlands, Market, North Rose Hill, Juanita, Totem Lake, Finn Hill and Kingsgate neighborhoods.
During the summer, local residents of neighboring cities flock to Kirkland to visit Kirkland’s many waterfront parks on Lake Washington. Kirkland has many neighborhood parks, including Saint Edward State Park, Bridle Trails State Park, as well as many other City and County Parks.
There is easy access from Kirkland to other Eastside cities, including Redmond, Bellevue, Woodinville, Kenmore, Bothell, Issaquah and Sammamish via the I-405 freeway and to Seattle via the 520 bridge across Lake Washington.
