The health and safety of our residents and visitors is the highest priority of the City of Kirkland. As of Monday, January 11, 2021, Kirkland is in Phase 1 of Governor Jay Inslee’s regional “Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery” phased plan for economic recovery. In response to the ongoing restrictions on in-person customer experiences, we have had to find innovative ways to safely support our unique and vibrant community of small businesses, restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries and more. One of our most front-facing remedies to help curb the economic crisis is our digital main street, known as Shop Local Kirkland, which enables users to safely browse Kirkland businesses and shop from the comfort of their living rooms.
Are you craving a taste of the Kirkland waterfront? In late 2020 the Shop Local Kirkland initiative rolled out In-Car Dining, which allows guests to park in Marina Park - one of our most beautiful doorways to Lake Washington - and order delicious food from one of our nearby restaurants. Several participating restaurants will deliver right to your car door!
We are adapting daily with new ideas, creativity and good humor to ensure the health and safety of our residents and visitors. While we welcome visitors in compliance with the Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery plan, if you choose to stay at home, please know that we are busy planning for your arrival, ensuring your safe and energizing stay, and preparing to support your COVID-19-compliant future adventure. We are a dynamic city, alive with the arts, at home with our enterprising heritage, and in love with our unique lifestyle. When the time is right for you, come and unwind, come and experience, come and stay. Until such time, stay healthy, stay safe and we’ll see you soon in Kirkland. #KirklandAwaits
