About This Activity

SATURDAY, JUNE 22nd

Party in the Park is a community celebration and the largest annual fundraiser for Bridle Trails Park Foundation, a non-profit 501c3 established in 2002 to protect, preserve, maintain, and enhance Bridle Trails State Park. With a rich equestrian history, the park is a unique and rare public venue where, in an urban neighborhood, both horses and people connect with each other and nature. Located at the intersection of Bellevue, Kirkland and Redmond, the 482-acre park boasts 28 miles of pedestrian and equestrian trails.

5K &10K EVENTS ARE JUST THE BEGINNING OF THE PARTY  

These are professionally timed races with all the bells and whistles. Courses are on dirt and gravel trails throughout the park. The ground is often uneven, hilly in places, and riddled with tree roots. No dogs or bicycles will be allowed on the course. While child jog strollers are allowed, please keep in mind that you will be running or walking on narrow, natural dirt trails. To be considerate of others, please start in the back of the pack if you plan on bringing a stroller.

PARKING & FREE SHUTTLE
Due to the increased attendance and need for horse trailer parking, there will be limited parking in the main lot. It will be restricted to disabled parking for those displaying a state-issued handicapped placard and event-support vehicles only. Attendees will need to park at the Central Park Tennis Club (5820 125th Lane NE, Kirkland WA 98033). The entrance to the Central Park Tennis Club parking lot is across the street from Ben Franklin Elementary School on NE 60th Street. There will be shuttle service between the Central Park Tennis Club and the event. Since the park is only a few minutes from this parking lot, the shuttle will be making trips every 10 minutes from 7:30 am to 1:00 pm. Please consider using this FREE service!
