Marine Park Phase 4

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

Vancouver used this grant to develop trails, picnic sites, a viewpoint and beach access at Marine Park on the Columbia River near downtown Vancouver. Marine Park covers 69 acres and is a primary destination on the 4-mile Columbia River Renaissance Trail.
