Storvik Park Spray Pad & New Restroom
HELP US SUPPORT the Storvik Park Spray Pad & New Restroom Project!! The spray pad itself is designed to provide a range of fun and interactive spray elements in a form that is unique to our community. We are calling our design theme "Marine Adventure" and many of our native coastal animals will be featured as spray elements including the playful seal and at-grade water arcs that run through the entire channel. The park will be a spray to drain system, but all of these spray elements will be low-flow nozzles as well as be computer controlled, to maximize the play and minimize water usage. The Restroom will have 3 spaces on the men's and the women's side. The roof will have skylights to take advantage of natural light. All lights inside will be motion sensor and the toilets and faucets will be low flow. The restroom will also include hand dryers and will have room to change if needed. The project budget for both the spray pad and restroom is $682,500. We have received a WWRP (Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program) grant in the amount of $335,000. This is a matching grant. The City of Anacortes has a Fundraising Target of $180,000. The current projected finish date on this project is Summer 2016.

Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve (SHIP)
The SHIP project was established to preserve and protect a very special wetland tucked away in Anacortes near the busy Washington State Ferry Terminal. In addition to the 25 acres of freshwater wetlands, there are also five acres of upland habitat and 2,000 feet of sandy beach and subtidal eelgrass beds. It is a rich and interesting area, with an abundance of plants and wildlife. Learn more at the Anacortes Parks Foundation News page.

Causland Memorial Park
This unique 2 acre park, located at 8th Street and "N" Avenue, was built in the 1920's by John LePage. The park features decorative rock and mosaics, a small bandstand and amphitheater, ornamental shrubs and a picnic area. A portion of the park honors Anacortes veterans from World War I through the Vietnam War. The park is on the National Register of Historic Places and with the help of the APF is undergoing a restoration program.
