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

State Parks will use this grant to buy 21 acres near Miller Peninsula State Park. The land will provide more than a quarter-mile of shoreline to the public and a second, much needed water access. The park near Sequim includes about 2,800 acres of the north Olympic Peninsula and a trail system popular with hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, and wildlife viewers. The land to be purchased is one of the few places along the north side of the Miller Peninsula with low enough bank to build access to the beach. Much of the existing state park land is on a very high bank.
