On hot days, sun-worshippers, swimmers, and the beach-volleyball crowd flock to this beach south of downtown Kirkland on the Lake Washington waterfront. The rest of the year, the playground attracts families, and the fishing pier stays busy with anglers. Facilities include drinking water, picnic tables, a beach volleyball court, phones, and restrooms. Park the car and slip on some good walking shoes; it's a lovely walk along the waterfront to the shops and restaurants of either Carillon Point or downtown Kirkland.
