City of Kirkland introduces Adopt-a-Trail Program

The City of Kirkland has introduced an Adopt-a-Trail program for the Cross Kirkland Corridor. The program allows city residents, businesses and community groups to adopt quarter-mile segments of the trail and pledge to pick up litter and clear vegetation. The program aims to encourage community pride and volunteerism. Volunteer efforts will support the City’s regularly scheduled maintenance of the trail.

Eight segments of the trail have already been adopted by the Everest Neighborhood, Evergreen Hill Neighborhood, Highlands Neighborhood, DeYoung Manufacturing, Inc., Kudos Kirkland, Moss Bay Design, and former Kirkland City Manager David Ramsay.

If a business, neighborhood association or community service group is interested in adopting a portion of the Cross Kirkland Corridor, please contact Kirkland Public Works Street Division at 425-587-3907 or
