Kirkland seeks input on Edith Moulton Park improvements

The city of Kirkland Parks and Community Services Department invites citizens to review a final draft schematic design plan for Edith Moulton Park at an open house event from 6-8 p.m. on July 22 at the park picnic shelter located at 108th Ave. N.E. and N.E. 137th Place.

Citizens can drop by to meet with Kirkland Park Board members, parks staff and design consultants to review and comment on proposed improvements to the 26-acre park property acquired from King County in 2011.

Project goals include preserving and managing the parks extensive forested areas; protecting and enhancing the park’s stream and wetlands; improving accessibility for all trail users; exploring opportunities for environmental education and historic interpretation; and providing for the recreation needs and interests of local residents.

Input from citizens will be used to finalize a park master plan scheduled to be approved by the Kirkland City Council later in 2014. Park construction is scheduled to begin in 2015 and is funded by the voter-approved 2012 Kirkland Parks Levy.
