Seaview Dunes – Doney

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission used this grant to buy approximately 18 acres, including 870 feet of ocean waterfront. The land is zoned for development. The Seaview Dunes area of the Long Beach Peninsula provides one of the most spectacular views along the Washington coast and has long received local protection. However, local zoning allowed a handful of sites to be residential, and these now are proposed for development. Acquisition of this land is part of a multi-year plan to obtain property along the southern portion of the Long Beach Peninsula in the Seview Dunes area.
