Kirkland Asks Residents For Edith Moulton Park Suggestions

Kirkland Parks and Community Services Department invites citizens to provide ideas for future improvements to Edith Moulton Park at an Open House event on Wednesday, Jan. 22, slated from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The gathering will be held at Helen Keller Elementary School, 13820 108th Avenue N.E.  Citizens can drop by to meet with Kirkland Park Board members, parks staff, and design consultants to review overall project goals and to suggest priorities for future improvements to the 26-acre park property acquired from King County in 2011. 

Preliminary project goals include preserving and managing the park's extensive forested areas; protecting and enhancing the park’s stream and wetlands; improving accessibility for all trail users; exploring opportunities for environmental education and programs with local schools; and providing for the recreation needs and interests of local residents. 

Input from citizens will be used to develop park design options to be unveiled in the spring.  Park construction is scheduled to occur in 2016 and is funded by the voter-approved 2012 Kirkland Parks Levy.

For more information contact Michael Cogle, Deputy Director of Parks and Community Services, at mcogle@kirklandwa.gov or 425-587-3310.
