Friends Landing – 1996

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 is the final development phase of this popular riverside recreational area with its model barrier-free design for people with disabilities, their families, friends, and the general public. This phase constructs a campground and includes landscaping, play areas, restrooms, and parking.
