State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.
State Parks will use this grant for day-use develoment at the Kukutali Preserve, located near Deception Pass State Park between Fidalgo and Whidbey Islands. This project would implement all remaining elements of the master plan, including construction of trails, picnic areas and picnic shelter, viewing platforms, vault toilets, and interpretive signs. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this project are walking, picnicing, sightseeing and interpretation.
