State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will use this grant to buy the 134-acre Lawrence Point property to provide improved water access at Moran State Park. The property is within Moran’s long-term boundary, surrounded by two existing State Parks’ parcels, and would provide an excellent location for hiking trails. In addition, with 1600 feet of saltwater shoreline, the property will present visitors with incredible views of other islands and mainland. The primary recreational opportunity provided by the project is hiking and nature viiewing.
