Long-term park planning continues
CAMP meeting answers questions about alternative plansAnother overflow crowd turned out for the latest park lands planning meeting on Tuesday April 26. Billed as a “question and answer” session, there was an abundance of both.
Did you know:
• SWSP has 354-acres and 4,500 feet of saltwater shoreline on Admiralty Inlet. Environmental treasures include old-growth forest, tidelands, campsites, a group camp, miles of hiking trails, and spectacular views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.
• Locals have camped there with their children, grandchildren, and friends, volunteered at work parties, worked on special projects, and led interpretative walks and evening amphitheater programs. Visitors come from around the world to camp among the big trees, bird watch and enjoy the great outdoors. Everyone who visits SWSP marvels at its beauty.
• SWSP has a long history of proactive community support and involvement. In 1977, locals blocked the cutting down of old growth trees in the Classic U forest (the land located across the road from the main entrance), which was added to the park in 1985. Through the years, the community has continuously supported the park with their time and talent. These connections have helped the park remain a gem of the south end.
