Lewis River Greenway – 1992

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

Purchase of approximately 89 acres of parcels adjacent to 333-acre Moulton Falls Regional Park, on the Lewis River. The sites connect to the Clark County-owned Lewis and Clark railroad right-of-way, forming a continuous scenic greenway from the City of Vancouver to northeast Clark County along the Lewis River.
