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 and then rehabilitate the beach to increase habitat and access to the beach. The creosote pier is one of the last structures that extends into the beach and interrupts beachcombers, boaters, and habitat. In addition to removing the pier, the City will create the only hand-launch for boats along the popular Edmonds Waterfront, reroute the existing walkway to create a continuous path from Marina Beach to Brackett’s Landing North, and improve the outdated storm water infrastructure. Edmonds will contribute $915,743 in cash and a grant from the state Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account.
