“Kingsgate” area wants to keep the name “Kingsgate” as previously designated to this area of Kirkland WA 50 years ago in 1964. There are a few residents that want to change the name to Evergreen Hill, and we want to keep the name “Kingsgate”.

“Kingsgate” area is well known to the local residents and to residents as far away as Olympia and Blaine.

Maps (printed and online) list “Kingsgate” as an area in Kirkland WA.
