S 116th St At Green-Duwamish River

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 City of Tukwila will use this grant to acquire a one-acre property along the Duwamish River adjacent to the regional Green River Trail. Purchasing this property will facilitate future opportunities for restoration and creation of a riverfront neighborhood park that will also provide habitat benefits for salmon and wildlife. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this grant will be a future riverview walking pathway and interpretive signage, in addition to future opportunities for trails and river bank restoration.
