Hidden Cove 2

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 Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Parks and Recreation District will use this grant to buy a half-acre near Hidden Cove Park along the Cascade Marine Trail. The land will support a community boating program with a large dock, a shelter for instruction, equipment storage, and expanded access to the waterfront. The Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Parks and Recreation District will contribute $250,025 in voter-approved bonds and donated cash.
