Miller Peninsula Jones Trust Property

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 Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will use this grant to purchase a 21-acre property adjacent to the northwest corner of Miller Peninsula State Park, which will provide approximately 1,500 feet of additional shoreline to the public and a second, much needed water access point to the beach. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this project are hiking and beach access.
