Swan Slough Boat Ramp to Close

The Swan Slough boat ramp and parking lot will be closed for repairs beginning June 1.  We expect it to be closed for the week until it is resurfaced.  We are hoping to have it reopened by the weekend of June 6.


Also closing during this time will be the 5th Avenue boat ramp.  This window of closure will be much smaller.  


We hope you come to enjoy these improvements once they are finished.
