Waverly Beach Picnic Shelter

Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal!

When the Rotary Club of Kirkland came to us with the idea of helping to fund a new picnic shelter at Waverly Beach, we were excited to participate. This was the Kirkland Parks Foundation’s first fundraising project and we were happy to be working closely with both the Rotary Club of Kirkland and the City of Kirkland.

The picnic shelter brought a much-needed community meeting area to a one of the City’s favorite beach parks.  Picnic shelters at our parks currently are very popular and the one at Waverly Beach has been appreciated and frequently used.

The estimated cost of the picnic shelter is $125,000 (it was originally $150,000 but the Kirkland Park Dept. was able do reduce the budget by $25,000 through negotiations with contractors). Both the Rotary Club of Kirkland and the City of Kirkland committed to fund $50,000 each.  The Kirkland Parks & Community Foundation raised the remaining funds from the community by June 2015 to ensure the completion of the project.
