Double Bluff – 1991

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

County acquired approximately two acres of uplands to facilitate future development of a water access site to over one mile of public tidelands. Property is located on southwest Whidbey Island, approximately five miles south of Freeland on Useless Bay.
