On February 12, 2018, staff updated City Council on the design progress being made and next steps for this project. To view the report, click here.




This project is part of The Walkways & Waterways approved ballot measure, and the result of the City’s “Imagine Kenmore” public outreach initiative. Kenmore residents confirmed that safe routes for pedestrians and cyclists and connecting residents with the City’s public open space and waterfront are top priorities.

Squire’s Landing Park is located at 7353 NE 175th Street in Kenmore. This waterfront park features .65 acres with over 150 lineal feet of shoreline access to the Sammamish River and Swamp Creek in addition to a 40+ acre area of undeveloped open space.  Squire's Landing is host to youth and adult canoe, kayak and dragon boat programs. Squire's Landing is named in honor of Watson Squire, an early Kenmore developer who had visions for a local waterfront park in the early 1900s.


Project Description:

Eleven-acre project to improve public water access to the Sammamish River. Improvements will include new elevated walkways, trails, and viewpoints, as well as natural open space and other environmental enhancements. The project will also add new boating facilities including docks, ramps, and staging areas for hand-powered watercraft; parking; and a restroom.

A new float has been installed at Squire's Landing Park, an early success for the remaining improvements that are scheduled for construction in 2023. To view the project page, visit here.
