Exciting Updates to our Cross Kirkland Corridor

Pavilion with signs
The Rotary Club of Kirkland
has developed a collection of projects to be installed at the midpoint of the Cross Kirkland Corridor, at the site of the former Northern Pacific Railroad.  The centerpiece will be a Picnic Pavilion with picnic tables and illustrated signage describing the railroad's 100+ year history in Kirkland, with old photographs of trains and the two structures that once stood on the site.  Also included will be a 60-foot section of original rails, a native plants area illustrating original vegetation along the corridor, a railroad crossing sign, and split-rail fencing.  A detailed timeline and photos can be found here.

The Kirkland Parks Foundation has approved sponsorship of the Native Plants Garden and fencing and is currently raising funding - but they are only 13% funded so far on their $3500 goal- Do you use the CKC often? Would you like to help support this project?  Here is the link to help make it happen.

A nitpic -- the railroad was the Northern Pacific, not the Great Northern. But this a a great project and they need some donations to get this done!
