Shopping & Markets

Situated within an arm’s reach of Lake Washington and nearby Marina Park, downtown Kirkland offers a unique waterfront shopping experience that cannot be duplicated. The crown jewel of our downtown shopping district is Park Lane, a bustling street reminiscent of something you might find in Paris or Italy. 

Known as an “American woonerf” – which loosely translates to “living street” – Park Lane is a charming thruway that invites pedestrian exploration day and night. Tucked right in the heart of downtown Kirkland, the plaza-style two-block retail corridor offers exciting dining options, indulgent desserts, art galleries, custom boutiques, classy consignment shops and more, for an unforgettable downtown shopping experience. Lake Washington sparkles just a block away, and the pedestrian and bike-friendly street is lit up at night for added walkability and aesthetic appeal. The cozy, innovative lane features an outdoor sculpture gallery for added intrigue and enhanced public enjoyment. 

Our shopping opportunities are growing in leaps and bounds! Once you’ve gotten your fill of Park Lane and the rest of downtown Kirkland, make sure you head to Totem Lake to experience Village at Totem Lake! This sparkling new mixed-use development is breathing new life into the now-burgeoning region of Totem Lake, located in north Kirkland.
