Thomas Eddy Park

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

Acquisition of 9,000 feet of riverbank along the Snohomish River. The property, four miles south of Snohomish, has a large wetland area and provides opportunities for small boat access, fishing, swimming, and interpretive trails. The river is a popular site for waterfront recreation.
