Kayak Point Waterfront Improvements Phase 1

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

Snohomish County Parks will use this grant to complete renovation and development at Kayak Point Park on the eastern shores of the Salish Sea, located near the City of Stanwood in Snohomish County. Project development will include renovation of the entire day-use area of the park by moving parking and roadways off the shoreline, constructing a soft shore berm with native plant enhancement and raising the entire site for long-term sea level rise resilience. Additional development will include the renovation of the existing fishing pier. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project will be public shoreline access and day-use of a County park facility.
