Juanita Beach reopens after elevated water bacteria levels forced closure

The beach was closed on July 27, 2022.

After a two-week closure due to elevated bacteria levels, Public Health – Seattle & King County has recommended that the City of Kirkland reopen Juanita Beach Park for swimming, wading and other water activities.

Water quality staff from the King County Water and Land Resources Division tested the water on Monday, Aug. 8, and notified the City on Tuesday, Aug. 9 that the waters were again safe for recreational use. King County crews will return weekly to the beach throughout the summer to take samples to ensure that the water is safe.

City lifeguards will be on-shift beginning at 12 pm on Wednesday, Aug.10.
