“Connecting the Community with Water.” Named for Watson C. Squire, an early Kenmore developer who had visions for a waterfront park in the early 1900s, Squire’s Landing Park comprises 42-acres at the confluence of Swamp Creek and the Sammamish River. Kenmore purchased the land in 2014, when it included just an old floating dock with a makeshift ramp, but which the public immediately embraced as a launch for kayaks and paddleboards. The park is home to the Kenmore Waterfront Activities Center, a non-profit that offers all-age programs (including youth scholarships) to learn or to improve water skills for dragon boat, canoe and kayak, outrigger canoe, and rowing. KWAC hosts an annual Waterfront Festival, at which the public can try their hands at dragon boat paddling.

Check out: Watch for water birds near the floating launch, and don’t miss the outdoor fish sculpture dedicated to Kenmore resident Davy Wheeler.

Return the way you came. Brew Row begins with Cairn Brewery on 73rd Avenue NE, a half-block south of the Burke-Gilman Trail, which runs parallel to NE Bothell Way.
