Evergreen Fisheries Park Phase 2

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

This project involves the second phase of acquisition at Evergreen Fisheries Park located near the Columbia River in south-central Vancouver. The County will acquire approximately 9.83 acres, including a 2.5 acre pond known as East Biddle Lake. The project site is located immediately adjacent to the Columbia River Renaissance regional trail system which extends between Vancouver and Camas. This project will complete acquisition at this park and provide the landbase for trails, picnic sites, and interpretive signing.
