It was in May of 2010 that the above photo was taken of Juanita Beach Park. Prior to Kirkland's taking ownership of the park, Juanita Beach was owned and managed by King County.
The flat grass field between the driveway and the water (behind the downed poplar trees) was often the site of picnics, and recreation. Today that area is designated a wetland, a sensitive area off limits to humans.
The park renovation included an amphitheater and a nature path crossing over Juanita Creek to the west.
