Lighthouse Park Phase 2

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

Mukilteo Lighthouse Park Phase 2 is part of a four-phased plan to redevelop this existing 15-acre public park. The second phase improvements included: fencing that defines the bounds of lighthouse station; a curbless plaza/cul-de-sac in front of the lighthouse; shoreline and drought tolerant plantings; a picnic shelter/bandshell; restrooms with storage; safe, accessible walkways within the lighthouse complex, along the waterfront and Front Street, and along a section of an axial path to SR 525; and interpretive signs that speaks to the site’s rich natural and human history.
