Waterfront Park is one of the most popular civic and social gathering places for island residents and visitors. It welcomes annual festivals, summer performances, special events, picnics, music performances, and more. It provides sunny lawn areas for play and relaxation and easy access to the water's edge for boating and tranquil views of Eagle Harbor.
The 5.5-acre park also supports a children's play area. Waterfront Park is bordered by the downtown area featuring a wide range of restaurants, businesses and retail stores within walking distance.
Waterfront Park is open for day use only and is located on Eagle Harbor off Brien Drive (across from the Senior Community Center).
The 900-foot city dock is directly south of Waterfront Park. It is open year-round and is first-come, first-served. The city dock offers guest moorage for vessels up to 70 feet. Please contact Harbormaster Tami Allen at 206-780-3733 (or the phone number at the bottom of your receipt) with any questions.
