Anderson Point

Category Overview

Washington is famous for its gorgeous and abundant waterways, from the Salish Sea to the Nisqually River, but many communities lack open public beaches and waterfronts where everyone can enjoy picnicking, swimming, paddling, boating, and angling. Water Access projects fund public shoreline access, boat launches, and fishing docks to create more opportunities for water recreation.

Project Highlights

This project will acquire 72 acres located in South Kitsap County directly facing east to Vashon Island. The site has 1,985 feet of waterfront, with a sand/gravel beach. The bank accessing the beach is low and the uplands are forested and undeveloped. Much of the upland is in steep topography, however, a good service road traverses the site to the beach access which includes an extensive but easily accessible 7 acres of level spit area along the waterfront.
