  • At more than 22 miles long and three miles wide, this is the second largest natural lake in Washington State. At its deepest, the water sinks 214 feet below the surface.
  • The lake is connected to Puget Sound via Lake Washington Ship Canal, which was built in 1916. Across the water from Kirkland, you can see Seattle.
  • With more than 100 miles of shoreline, Lake Washington has a lot to offer. For Kirkland, it's all about the water. The city has created a fabulous series of waterfront parks for residents and guests to swim, boat, fish, and windsurf.
