South Lake Union/Kurtzer

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

This aquisition involves the purchase of 1.2 acres on Waterway #3 on Lake Union, which will complete the acquisition necessary for an urban waterfront park in Seattle.
