Kirkland city government The City Council is Kirkland’s governing body and is comprised of seven nonpartisan members who are elected by the voters of Kirkland to serve “at large” (not representing a district or ward). Council members are elected every two years to serve four-year terms. The mayor and deputy mayor are elected among the members to serve two-year terms. Kirkland operates under the “councilmanager” form of government which means all legislative and policy-making powers are vested in the City Council. The council employs a professionally-trained public administrator and a city manager to carry out the policies it develops. Kirkland City Hall is located at 123 Fifth Ave., Kirkland. For information, call (425) 587-3001 or email citycouncil@kirklandwa.gov.

Kirkland parks It has been said that parks reflect the soul of Kirkland. From the serene vitality of Juanita Bay Park’s wetlands to the constant vibrancy in downtown’s Peter Kirk Park, Kirkland’s park system provides something for everyone – and then some. Gleaming waterfront parks provide access to the natural beauty and neverending wonders of Lake Washington.

Neighborhood parks offer refuge from the daily grind as well as a chance to meet and play with our neighbors. The city also purchased the section of old BNSF rail line through Kirkland to create the Cross Kirkland Corridor, a trail for walkers and cyclists.
