Money Magazine honored Kirkland with its designation of one of the Top Ten Best Places to Live, and it’s easy to see why. A venerable yet contemporary community with downtown frontage on gorgeous Lake Washington, and composed of thirteen diverse and unique neighborhoods, an upscale commercial district, and great schools is bound to capture national attention.
Indulge in the vibrant nightlife at the performing arts center, galleries, wineries and restaurants, or get outside at the 55 designated parks, trails and recreational facilities, and you’ll be greeted with stunning views at every turn.
Explore the Finn Hill neighborhood and get lost in the 220-acre woods at Big Finn Hill King County Park, the 316-acre St. Edwards State Park – a “Deep Green Suburban Wonderland” – with 3,000 feet of Lake Washington shoreline, or the smaller O.O. Denny Park with its ancient conifer forest.
Choose from the full dance card of annual events, including The 7 Hills of Kirkland Cycling Events, the Kirkland Artist Studio Tour, Summerfest and the Summer Concert Series, or Oktoberfest.
Kirkland is thriving, yet through change it strives to maintain the natural beauty of the region.
