West of Market

West of Market is among the most desirable neighborhoods in Kirkland. The neighborhood curves around a hillside above Lake Washington with a large percentages of the houses having wonderful lake views. The neighborhood includes 800+ homes, five parks, and 9 homes registered with the historic society. Downtown Kirkland is within walking distance of at least the southern half of the neighborhood. The busy neighborhood association puts on an annual halloween parade, easter egg hunt, and summer picnic. 
Neighborhood highlights:

  • Waverly Beach Park - This was my favorite park as a kid with its well-defined swimming area within the docks, sandy beach (concrete steps in my day), and playground with big swings. It's a shady, cool spot on a hot summer day under the big trees and by the lakeside. Parking is tight, so arrive early!
  • Juanita Bay Park - This park occupies a former golf course. My Dad used to play there and said it was the soggiest course he'd ever played on. The soggy ground is now given over to a restored wetland with trails running through it. Watch for herons and the beaver dam. The old Market Street Bridge was found to be unsafe for vehicle traffic, so it was given over to the park as a bike and pedestrian pathway along the lake and through the wetland.
