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.
The purpose of this agreement is the purchase of approximately 40 acres with 1,320 feet of frontage on Rocky Ford Creek. This provides public access to an extremely popular trout fishing stream. Project is located in Grant County, approximately five miles southeast of Ephrata.
