Kirkland unveils 3 design alternatives for Totem Lake Park at outdoor Open House, Sept. 21


Public comment will shape preferred alternative


The City of Kirkland Parks and Community Services Department is inviting citizens to review and comment on design alternatives for Totem Lake Park at a public outdoor open house on Saturday, September 21, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.  The open house will be located in the parking lot of the Yuppie Pawn Shop, located at 12031 NE Totem Lake Way, just north of the lake.  Citizens can drop by to meet with Kirkland Park Board members, parks staff, and design consultants to examine three conceptual design alternatives.  Public input will be used to consolidate the alternatives into one preferred schematic design for the park master plan.  Goals for the park master plan include improving the lake’s ecological value, creating a better sense of place for the Totem Lake Neighborhood, encouraging future economic development of the business district, and connecting with the adjacent Cross Kirkland Corridor.  The master plan for the park will be completed in 2013.


Totem Lake Park is a 17-acre property owned by the King Conservation District and managed in conjunction with the City of Kirkland. For more information contact Michael Cogle, Deputy Director of Parks and Community Services, at or (425) 587-3310.


This event is part of the City’s Kirkland 2035 public involvement campaign.  To receive updates on the Totem Lake Park Master Plan and other long range plans, visit
