David E. Brink Expansion

Category Overview

Washington is famous for its gorgeous and abundant waterways, from the Salish Sea to the Nisqually River, but many communities lack open public beaches and waterfronts where everyone can enjoy picnicking, swimming, paddling, boating, and angling. Water Access projects fund public shoreline access, boat launches, and fishing docks to create more opportunities for water recreation.

Project Highlights

Addition of .03 acre and 175 lineal feet of Lake Washington waterfront property to Kirkland’s park system. The acquisition expanded David E. Brink Park to nearly 600 lineal feet of public access shoreline, creating Kirkland’s 5th largest waterfront park.
