Edmonds Waterfront Development

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

The City of Edmonds will use this grant to remove an aged creosote parking pier that extends over the beach, located on the Edmonds waterfront. Further development will include expansion of public access by providing a hand launch boat access, re-routing of the existing walkway to re-establish the intertidal and beach zones, and improving upon the existing outdated storm water infrastructure using LID practices. The primary recreation opportunity provided by the project will be increased water access for public recreation.
