Marina Beach Park Redevelopment

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

The City of Edmonds will use this grant to redevelop Marina Beach Park, a 4.94-acre waterfront park. The City will install a playground, add and renovate scenic overlooks, renovate the dog park, improve parking and pedestrian pathways, create a launch for nonmotorized boats, and install restrooms at two new entry plazas. The City also will create an open tidal channel for Willow Creek, a historically salmon-bearing stream currently piped under the park, by returning it to the surface, planting its banks with native plants, and adding interpretive signs along walking trails. Edmonds will contribute more than $4.5 million in cash and a grant from RCO’s Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account.
