Waterfront Acquisition, Allyn

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 will acquire 450 feet of waterfront in Allyn for a kayak park and public access. The property has 300′ of sand/rock beach, which is ideal for hand launch craft, swimming and playing on the beach.
