Thank You

The feasibility study is complete - thanks to those of you who participated in one of our many stakeholder engagement activities and presentations. We are now looking into options to fund the project and move forward. A copy of the feasibility study can be found here.

Project Description

The goal of this project is to explore options for rehabilitation, renovation, or replacement of Magnuson Park Building 31 (the Sail Sand Point covered moorage and boathouse).  The existing structure was built by the Navy between 1938 and 1991 and served as a lookout and storage for rescue boats. For the past 20 years, it has served countless sailors, paddlers and boaters through Sail Sand Point's community boating programs. Seattle Parks and Recreation and Sail Sand Point are committed to retaining and expanding the value that this facility provides, and this study will explore options to do so that are sensitive to environmental concerns, sensitive to its historic legacy, and safe and accessible for users.
