The history of Juanita Beach
In the July 2020 issue of Kirkland Lifestyle magazine I described the rich History of Juanita Beach. As I said at the beginning of the article, “Juanita Beach is likely the most historic property owned by the City of Kirkland, yet one might never realize that. Today it has a vastly different feel and look than it had throughout most of the 20th century, part of an apparent effort by the city to achieve homogeneity throughout its park system at the cost of a park’s historic character.”
I hope you enjoy reading about this wonderful Kirkland asset and that the photos transport you back a few decades. This article is an expanded version of the Juanita Beach feature on this site.
