Here’s an exciting Hawley Cove construction update – the new boardwalk could be coming this summer, thanks to YOU! We’re grateful to you for spreading the word among your neighbors and friends, allowing us to hit our fundraising target in record time.
We reached our $20,000 goal in just three weeks, thanks to your generous contributions.
Special thanks again to our capstone donors, Sound West Group and Olympic Property Group, a Pope Resources Company, and also the Wenzlau Architects firm. Together we pushed the campaign over the top in record time! THANK YOU ALL for this astonishingly fast and wholly successful project fundraiser.
The Park District’s construction team has tentatively scheduled work in July and August on this great new amenity to link the Hawley parking area with the park berm, improving access for all park users including the mobility impaired. Boardwalk construction will respect this highly sensitive marsh environment, as the Park District team will employ a new low-impact auger machine funded by a grant from the Parks Foundation.
We are still accepting donations for the park. All new contributions will go toward cleaning up the old boardwalk and ongoing restoration work at Hawley Cove.
