Arete's 10 Minute Community


Located on Lake Washington, life in Downtown Kirkland is all about the water: boating and sailing, swimming, and fishing. In fact, two local marinas -- Marina Park and Carillon Point -- have guest moorage so visitors can hop off their boats and go shopping or have dinner downtown. For those who prefer to get around on land, Kirkland offers miles of bike lanes and a series of bike routes called the "7 Hills of Kirkland." Downtown Kirkland has a bicycle rental program, as well. Big Finn Hill Park, a 220-acre park, includes a five-mile mountain bike trail. Kirkland Urban on Central Way features a new shopping center with new shops coming soon including a large movie theatre and QFC shopping center.
