Kirklanders invited to celebrate expansion of Feriton Spur Park

The event will take place on July 13 from 5:30-8:00 p.m. at the park.

From 5:30-8 p.m. July 13, the Kirkland Downtown Association, Google, SRM Development, and the city of Kirkland will hold a celebration at Feriton Spur Park, located at 509 6th Street South.

Feriton Spur Park underwent renovations that more than doubled its size while adding new features such as a new 16-foot wide paved trail, a 44-foot pickleball court, an urban farm that grows vegetables for the food bank Hopelink, bathrooms, a splash area and an amphitheater.

Statements will be provided by Mayor Penny Sweet and Paco Galanes, Google’s site lead. Several sculptures, designed by Amber Mikluscak, that use pieces of the historic Kalakala ferry will also be unveiled.
