Whatcom County Parks & Recreation staff are working on planning and park improvements for Lily Point Marine Park. The park is located within the southeastern portion of Point Roberts and encompasses more than 275 acres with 1.4 miles of saltwater shoreline along Boundary Bay. Forested upland bluffs, beaches, and rich tidelands are just a few unique natural features of this amazing place.
Whatcom County acquired this property in 2008 with the assistance of The Nature Conservancy and Whatcom Land Trust. Preservation of the sites natural and cultural heritage and public access are major goals in the planning process for the park.
Proposed improvements include a trailhead with parking and restrooms, trails through forested uplands, viewpoints and shoreline access. (To see pictures of Lily Point click here).
Four community meetings were held in mid-January and late March to solicit public input regarding the future of the park. Comments generated from those meetings have been incorporated into a draft master plan available for viewing below.
