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.
This 36-acre acquisition creates a significant new waterfront park near Gig Harbor and the west end of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. The park has access to 1,100 feet of shoreline, including 650 feet of beach. The site offers a rare low bank waterfront facility on the west side of the Narrows. This project also received federal Land & Water Conservation funding.
