The City of Kirkland is known for its dedication to preserving the natural beauty of the environment and there is no better evidence of that than this park. Come for a guided tour offered the first Sunday of each month beginning at 1:00pm, or come on your own any time to visit the abundance of wildlife that fills these 110 acres of preserved wetlands and marshes. The animal population within this habitat includes songbirds, waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds, amphibians, turtles, beavers and other small mammals.  The park offers extraordinary views of Forbes Creek Wetland, Juanita Beach and Juanita Bay.  The park features paved trails, boardwalks, open lawn areas, benches and picnic tables.
