Clearing the Way for Washougal Waterfront Park

The waterfront trail system links the shoreline to downtown Washougal.

When the former Hambleton Lumber Company sawmill vacated its prime waterfront property near the Port of Camas-Washougal in 2010, leaving mounds of debris and contaminants behind, the Port only saw opportunity.

In November 2012, the Port purchased 13 acres of the former sawmill site from Killian Pacific, adding to 14 acres of adjacent Port-owned property along the Columbia River. While Killian Pacific retained 13 acres of the parcel, the company and Port joined forces to redevelop the entire 40-acre waterfront property into a community park, trail, and mixed-use marketplace, revitalizing downtown Washougal, Washington, into a place to live, work, and play.
