Residents love Kirkland’s parks and waterfront area. Lake Washington’s shores are lined with numerous parks, each offering its own unqiue and spectacular view of the water and it’s surroundings. Whether you want to have a picnic, toss a frisbee, lay out and read, play with dog, Kirkland’s parks can’t be beat! While you are enjoying the beauty of Kirkland’s surroundings, make sure to check out Park Art Kirkland, WA.

“First Romance” is a loved statue found at www.ilovekirkland.orgHoughton Beach Park. It is one of the few art sculptures that is perched on a park bench. The sculpture is near the children’s playground, grassy lawn, beach, and snack shop of the park. The piece of art portrays a young boy talking to two girls with ice cream cones sitting on a park bench. The sculpture was made by Prince Mihailescu-Nasturel and was a gift from the Danz family in 1992.

“Leap Frog” is a welcomed fixture of Marsh Park. The bronze sculpture is of children playing a game of leap frog in the grassy area. This statue represents the fun carefree nature of children enjoying the parks of Kirkland. This particular statue is occasionally dressed up and decorated by members of the community.

“Water Bearers” is a multiple art piece found in David Brink Park. The sculptures are somewhat hidden by the landscaping, but you can notice it a you pass by due to the www.ilovekirkland.orgcascading waterfall that is part of the structure. The bronze statues are of three women gathering water from the shores of Lake Washington. The sculptures were designed by Glenna Goodacre and was bought by Kirkland citizens in 2002.
