Fox Island Fishing Pier

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

This project involves the development of a fishing pier at Toy Point on the east end of Fox Island. The site replaces an old dock which was closed to the public for safety concerns.
