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.
The City of Lake Forest Park will use this grant to acquire waterfront land located near the City’s Town Center and the Burke-Gilman Trail, and next door to Lyon Creek Waterfront Preserve. This property is situated on the northwest shores of Lake Washington and is aproximately 1.65 acres of lake front property. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this project are swimming, picnicing, and sightseeing.
