Martha Lake Park Acq.

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

County purchased an old private resort on Martha Lake, near Mill Creek. Recreation uses will feature swimming, fishing, picnicking, and non-motorized boating for this community-based park facility
