More About Kirkland

Over the past few years, Kirkland has grown substantially by adding several unincorporated areas and today the estimated full-time residents are about 85,000. Heavily invested in the tech world, Kirkland’s growth continues to evolve and as more companies move into the community, the diversity of the city evolves and changes, bringing new opportunities along with it. While Seattle continues to attract young professionals and energetic change-makers, Kirkland’s relaxed style tends to draw more couples and families to its suburban setting and close-knit sense of community.

History

The first English settlers arrived in the area around Lake Washington in the late 1860s and began to build homesteads. Gradually more people came to live as the lumber industry began to heat up. Rather than taking its name from the iconic Costco brand, Kirkland was actually named after a British-born businessman who moved to the area to expand his family’s steel production company.

Kirk quickly realized that the location was perfect to provide a freshwater port for lumber coming from the mills which needed to be transported to the sea. Over the years, Kirkland has used its strategic position to supply goods and services for local industries, such as lumber, wool and shipbuilding. It also provided one of the jumping off points for the Alaska Gold Rush, providing prospectors with much needed supplies and clothing before they headed north.
Things to Do

First and foremost, Kirkland is an outdoor paradise. With its waterfront location, it’s natural that most residents enjoy some kind of aquatic lifestyle. With the relative calm of the water along the shoreline, one can observe residents out kayaking or paddle boarding. In addition to the city parks and recreation centers, each neighborhood maintains their own amenities as well, adding to the quality of life one finds in Kirkland.

Yet don’t let the slower-paced environment fool you, Kirkland offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the local art and cultures, music, nightlife and other activities. From fine dining to specialty boutiques or micro-breweries, Kirkland residents don’t need to leave their town to enjoy an afternoon of shopping or evening on the town. Celebrating local products, goods and services are on display throughout the community and residents value the idea of buying local to support their friends and neighbors. Considered a wellness destination, there are also a wide selection of spas and health centers which cater to self-improvement programs and weight loss to well-being regimens.

Arts and Culture

Kirkland has a thriving art scene with a plethora of art galleries, exhibits, classes, festivals and performing art venues throughout the city. In keeping with its outdoor lifestyle, Kirkland has an extensive collection of public art sculptures. Nationally recognized artists have provided installations of unique pieces placed throughout the city’s parks, sidewalks and along the waterfront.

The Pacific Northwest is known for pushing the boundaries and innovative ideas. The local performing arts embrace this vision with whimsical creations of theater, music, comedy and improv. Park Lane in downtown Kirkland is an outdoor feast of sculptures offered for sale to the public and displayed on a rotating basis. On the second Friday of each month, the city hosts the Downtown Kirkland Art Walk, providing a festive environment to enjoy local artists, foods, music and displays.

Outdoor Activities

For any kind of outdoor enthusiast, Kirkland offers a stunning array of options for enjoying the natural beauty of the area. The park system in Kirkland is one of the most extensive and unique public park systems in the country. In fact, parks and public beaches use 25% of the shorefront located within the city’s boundaries. Public and private docks offer boaters easy access to Lake Washington and no other lakefront city offers more moorage than Kirkland. Boat rentals are available as well as tours which take you out onto the water for a quick excursion or special event.

The Eastside Audubon Society holds bird watching tours each month on the first Sunday and third Tuesday where locals and visitors can enjoy the stunning local bird life.

With the easy access to Lake Washington, many residents own or rent kayaks as well as the recently popular paddle boarding. Water skiing is also a favorite pastime of the area and summer months see the lake filled with water craft of all kinds.

Shopping

Despite the notoriety of the Costco brand, Kirkland is known for its support of local small businesses. Along the quaint streets its waterfront downtown, you’ll find unique shops filled with unusual goods from local vendors. From high-end furniture, décor and antiques to handmade clothing and accessories, shoppers will find something special along Kirkland’s Main Street. While Kirkland recently welcomed its own Whole Foods location, residents still tend to eschew big chain shopping and grocery options for local shops providing local produce and specialty food items. From tasting rooms filled with cheese and small-batch delicacies to its farmer’s market and foodie festivals, Kirkland embraces its small-town atmosphere by buying local.

Dining and Entertainment

Kirkland is far from a sleepy waterfront village, it has a vibrant dining and entertainment lifestyle as well. Live music venues are dotted around the city and each summer, music lovers can enjoy the concert series in Marina Park, which take place every Thursday evening. The heart of the city revolves around the downtown area with restaurants offering fresh farm-to-table dishes and micro-brews on tap.

The Cross Kirkland Corridor is a 5.75 mile segment of the Eastside Rail Corridor which runs between the two Google campuses and passes 1700 businesses along its route, offering employees an easy alternative to private transportation.

Kirkland’s tech-centric heritage dates back to the 1980s when McCaw Cellular founded its corporate headquarters locally. Since then, new tech companies have descended on Kirkland, attracted to the less-congested neighbor of Seattle. In 2016, Kirkland formed the Innovation Triangle in partnership with Bellevue and Richmond which is focused on bringing new technology and innovative businesses to the region. Software, biotech and pharmaceutical companies are invited to learn more about doing business within the cities.

Locally, Kirkland also feeds the city’s shops, restaurants and services putting an emphasis on community support which includes a local workforce whenever possible.

Transportation

Kirkland is the first city in Washington to include bicycle and pedestrian needs as part of their transportation schemes. With the adoption of the Complete Streets ordinance in 2006, city planners were charged with including foot traffic and biking as part of their improvement programs and plans. In 2009, Kirkland passed the Active Transportation Plan which provided for pedestrian, bicycle and equestrian facilities and paths.

Kirkland is also served by the King County Metro system and the Sound Transit Express bus system and public transportation is an important method for moving through the area. Residents traveling out of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport will find a short 20 minute drive across the Lake Washington Floating Bridge along WA-520 or along I-405 and along I-90.
