The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.
The scope of this project was to develop Samish Overlook. Development included the design and construction of parking, improving restroom access, signage, an observation terrace, establishing links to trails, park furniture, equestrian posts and providing ADA access. This site is used by hang gliders, paragliders, horseback riders, hikers, picnickers, rock climbers, mountain bikers, and sightseers.
