While the city's downtown area includes plenty of shops, restaurants, art galleries, beauty salons and farmer's markets perfect for apartment residents, Kirkland undoubtedly prides itself on its natural beauty, with its numerous waterfront parks and beaches. With views of the Seattle skyline as well as the Olympic Mountains, residents are able to enjoy the scenery around them while also participating in any number of recreational activities including biking, walking, swimming and hiking.

Additionally, Kirkland's natural landscape lends itself to an abundance of wildlife. Nowhere is this wildlife more visible and diverse than at Juanita Bay Park, one of Kirkland's most prized features. At the park, which has been cited by the Audubon Society as one of the best urban wildlife preserves in the region, the animal population in the 110 acres of wetlands and marshes includes songbirds, waterfowl, raptors, turtles and beavers. For Kirkland apartment renters visiting the sanctuary, the park has paved trails and board walks in addition to open lawn areas and picnic tables. Spending the day walking through Juanita Bay Park can give visitors one of the best looks into the state's natural beauty and abundant wildlife population.
