Welcome to Anacortes Parks Foundation's website! Since our beginning in 1994 we have spent 2.4 million of donated dollars on Fidalgo and Guemes Islands and are often asked to describe our foundation. Hopefully from our website you will learn more about what we do, and perhaps participate in our programs.
The website has been designed so that you'll know what we're doing, and what we've done to satisfy recreational and leisure-time activity needs in our area. We've also partnered with the City of Anacortes, Skagit County, and other agencies to display most recreational facilities and programs that are available to residents and visitors on Fidalgo and Guemes Islands. You'll find that in our Parks List section.
A huge THANK YOU to the citizens of Anacortes for generously donating to rebuilt the Tommy Thompson Trestle. A complete list of donors is here. Check out the photo gallery of the Trestle Rebuild, from the fire to the reopening.
Community Grants Program reopened! Read about it here!
To encourage private or public donations of land or money for the acquisition, development, and enhancement of park and recreation facilities in and around Anacortes. We also manage park-related projects and administer charitable contributions for local programs.
