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 agreement is for the acquisition of approximately 233 acres on the Washougal River. The primary recreation opportunity is public access for state park purposes. Original Agreement Description: This agreement is for the acquisition of 45 acres in three separate private ownerships linked the existing public parcels into a single management unit. This Columbia River park site near Washougal includes access to two miles of beach and enough land to provide for a wide variety of recreation experiences in later development.
