Kirkland Events & COVID-19


Kirkland is a lovely, pedestrian-friendly city accessible by public transportation, boat and car. There is ample parking, much of it free, in the downtown core, at Totem Lake and in Juanita, all neighborhoods which offer much to see and do for the visitor. If you arrive by car, we invite you to park it and leave it, enjoying the amble through the downtown shops, boutiques, cafe's and waterfront parks that Kirkland is famous for. Information about parking can be found here

A green city, Kirkland offers several places for electric vehicles to charge while visitors enjoy downtown. The City offers free charging stalls at Marina Park Lakeshore Lot, Kirkland Library upper level parking lot, and City Hall.

You can download the ChargePoint app to find available EV Stations in your desired area.
