Chambers Lake Property -Replacement for Grass Lake

Category Overview

Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.

Project Highlights

The City of Olympia purchased 37.8 acres of open space to serve as replacement property for a partial conversion at Grass Lake (91-194.) The Chambers Lake Property is located within the City of Olympia abutting Chambers Lake and adjacent to the Chehalis Western Trail. The property provides passive public access, there are currently no developed facilities on these parcels. The City also owns the neighboring 9.3 acres to the west,  this portion is not included in the Deed of Right.
