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 buy 1 acre along the Duwamish River, next to the regional Green River Trail, for a park. The City will build a neighborhood park that gives trail users a chance to walk along an easy trail through the woods, see the river, and sit on a park bench. The City also will install interpretive signs that explain how the park functions as salmon habitat and how other parks within view of the shoreline are part of a connected greenbelt of habitat-oriented parks. Tukwila will contribute $206,880 in conservation futures.
