Reservoir Park Kirklland Washington

Reservoir Park Kirkland Washington is a pretty park. Not too big. Not too small. Doesn’t try to do very many things, but does what it does very well.
The Bicycle at Reservoir Park Kirklland Washington
The Reservoir Park Kirkland Washington has a signature feature. There is a bicycle sculpture at the entrance. It would serve beautifully to park your bike, or even chain your bike to. Is it public art? Is it to be used as a bike rack? Maybe both? I don’t know, but it is a unique and attractive feature of the park.
Reservoir Park Kirklland Washington
Reservoir Park Kirkland Washington has no sign. I don’t know what determines which parks have those beautiful Kirkland Parks signs, but this park has none.

Reservoir Park Kirkland Washington is located in the Norkirk neighborhood, with street parking on the street on two sides. It is .62 acres big, and it is fenced all around, with chain link mesh to contain small children and pets.
Swings at Reservoir Park Kirklland Washington
The three entrances to the Reservoir Park, however, are completely open, so if you bring children you need to be vigilant.

There is a row of mature trees on the north side of the Reservoir Park, creating shade on a hot day, but also a sense of beauty and peacefulness. There is also a scattering of trees on the west and south sides.
Playset at the Reservoir Park Kirklland Washington
The Reservoir Park Kirkland Washington is rectangular, almost level and is a large grassy field with a very nice children’s play set/ swing set in the middle. No ball fields here. No organized sports. No quarter size basketball court. Just a field and the children’s playset.

The swingset at Reservoir Park Kirkland Washingtonhas 4 swings. Two for toddlers, and two for children or adults.
Parks benches at Reservoir Park Kirklland Washington
The playset at Reservoir Park Kirkland Washington is blue and green. Has four different slides, an interesting platform with a couple of tubes to crawl through. A fiberglass rock climbing wall. An interesting platform to connect the different features.

There is one picnic table at the Reservoir Park Kirkland Washington, and two park benches located by the play set so weary parents and grandparents can watch their children while they play.
Leave a bag - Take a bag
Clearly the Reservoir Park is a good place to walk a dog, because there is one of those “Leave a bag - Take a bag” containers. The idea is to bring your plastic grocery bags and deposit them in the container. If your doggy does a doodoo, you will of course pick it up and put it in a bag (and cart it back home). But if you forgot a bag, you can take one from the container.
Entrance to Reservoir Park Kirklland Washington
Reservoir Park Kirkland Washington is a neighborhood park. Bring your kids. Bring your dog. Bring a book. Bring your frisbee. Great place to do simple things close by.

That bicycle sculpture is truly unique.  I just love it. You have done a great job capturing Reservoir Park both in your photos and your description.
