After a four-day cancellation of outdoor activities due to poor air quality caused by smoke from regional wildfires, city of Kirkland outdoor recreation activities are open and running on regular schedule Friday.

The Peter Kirk Pool is open. Lifeguards will be on duty at Waverly Beach and Juanita Beach. Houghton Beach is currently closed to swimming due to unsafe water conditions. Indoor recreation programs are on schedule.

Decisions about city of Kirkland outdoor recreation activities will be made on a daily basis depending on air quality conditions. If outdoor activities are canceled, the city will post information about the closure to the city’s website, Facebook page and Twitter account.

For more information on activity cancellations, contact the Parks and Community Services department at (425) 587-3300.
