"MV Kirkland" Ready for Adventure at Houghton Beach Park

[nggallery id=149] The City of Kirkland has completed work on the children's play area at Houghton Beach Park and it is now open to the public. Adventure on the high seas await you aboard the "MV Kirkland," permanently moored next to a tree house above Houghton Beach.

The new "MV Kirkland" pays homage to the iconic Argosy cruise ship of the same name which was docked at Marina Park until taken by fire last September.

The new "MV Kirkland" boasts a porthole, a climbing rope, a looking glass and a treacherous rope bridge to the adjacent treehouse (complete with no less than two slides).

Bon voyage!
