Possession Beach Waterfront Park

COVID-19 Response Measures

March 25 – Possession Beach Waterfront Park and Boat Ramp remains open for public use at this time; however, due to the volume of people visiting Washington’s ocean beaches, we are asking the public to avoid these areas.  People should continue to practice social distancing when recreating outdoors.  Additionally, due to increased usage of the restrooms and limited availability of expendable supplies, visitors should plan to bring their own hand sanitizer and toilet paper.  Portable toilets will be available at this location.
