Additional Information

Beginning Jan. 3, you can be inspired by the words of Martin Luther King Jr. as you take a winter walk at Lake Sammamish State Park. The walk pays tribute to his life and leadership while America celebrates MLK Day on January 18, 2021.

The walk will begin at Tibbetts Beach and takes you along the lakeshore to the Sunset Beach bathhouse. Learn about his life and his dreams with quotes along the pathway. Many of his quotes are as relevant today as they were in the 1960s when he initiated change while speaking out for civil rights.

MLK’s most famous speech— “I have a dream…” — is captured in its entirety at the end of the walk.

The MLK walk-in-the-park is brought to you with a grant from Visit Issaquah.
