Liberty Lake Regional Park Phase 1

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

The Spokane County Parks, Recreation and Golf Department will use this grant to renovate the beach area in Liberty Lake Regional Park. The park has aging facilities, nearing the end of their life, and no facilities for people with disabilities at its beach area. The County will add a boat launch, a kayak launch, and a fishing pier that are accessible to people with disabilities. The County also will renovate parking, roads, and pathways to ensure they can be used by people with disabilities. The work will create a new loading and unloading area for the beach, pave the beach access road, add a pathway from the main parking lot to the beach, reconfigure the park entrance, expand parking, install an automated parking ticket system, replace a restroom, improve irrigation, landscape, and install interpretive signs and a picnic shelter. The County will contribute $950,000 in cash and a grant from RCO’s Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account.
