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.
