Lewis River Greenway – 1995

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

This 100-acre acquisition project is located on the east fork of the Lewis River in north Clark County and enhances the county’s nearby park and trail facilities. The site provides opportunities for picnicking, hiking, swimming, and fishing on one of Washington State’s best steelhead streams.
