Outdoors & Recreation

From the serenity of Juanita Bay Park’s wetlands to the forested acres of Bridle Trails State Park and Big Finn Hill Park, Kirkland offers a chance to escape into nature without leaving the city.

Join in a beach volleyball game at Houghton Beach, rent a bike to cruise the lakefront, stroll downtown, or catch a baseball game in Peter Kirk Park.
