According to the website walkscore.com, Kirkland is tied with Tacoma as the second most walkable city in the state. The 79 largest cities in Washington have an average Walk Score of 42. The most walkable cities in Washington are Seattle, Kirkland, and Tacoma. The least walkable cities are Frederickson, Graham, and Cottage Lake. This information was mentioned at Tuesday's City Council meeting by Councilmember Amy Walen.
It looks like walkscore's database needs to be updated because they have not yet accounted for Kirkland's June 1, 2011 annexation.
