Google Opens New Recreational Area Along Cross Kirkland Corridor


On Aug. 31, Google and Kirkland residents will celebrate a new, highly-anticipated recreational space along the Cross Kirkland Corridor next to Google’s Kirkland campus. The $3 million project transformed a section of the abandoned rail corridor into a public open space with new recreational opportunities for Kirkland’s residents, as well as Google employees.  The new area features a sand volleyball court, basketball court, Crossfit/TRX fitness section and zip line. Media is invited to tour the space during the public celebration event, open for everyone in the community to enjoy, and interview Google spokespeople and local leaders.

Mayor Amy Walen will be joined by Darcy Nothnagle, Head of External Affairs for NW Region, Google and members of the public, as the public is invited to take part in the celebration on Monday, August 31 from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm. The Speaking program begins at 5:15 pm.
