Riverside – Little Spokane (phased)

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

This project consists of the acquisition of 3.61 acres of available uplands along Little Spokane River adjacent to Riverside State Park. This area is the perfect setting for public access and a natural habitat for wildlife. There is great potential for both water and land based trails and interpretive sites.
