Washougal River Greenway Ph. 2

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 project developed approximately 2,000 lineal feet of Washougal River shoreline and related greenway. Project highlights include approximately 2800 lineal feet of trail, a riverside overlook platform with a view of Mt. Hood, and revegatation of about four acres of the site.
