Lakeside Park

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

This project is designed to improve the safety, function and aesthetics of Lakeside Park. The need for improvements has been documented through three community workshops, five public meetings, community and user surveys and staff input. Lakeside Park was originally developed in 1938 as a passive, family oriented park. It continues to serve this purpose today. The proposed development for the park includes improved access with the addition of transient boat moorage, ADA accessibility improvements, sidewalks, a stepped sea wall along a portion of the beach and a paved boat launch area. It also has safety improvements including new signage, sea wall replacement, hand rails and parking.
