Who doesn’t love playing in the sand? Sand castles! Sand angels! Wiggling bare toes in warm sand! Our waterfront parks are a huge attraction for kids but do not attract much sand on their own.
Let’s bring in some fresh sand to play with.
Your donation will replenish the beach at Marina Park. One truckload of sand costs $500 and will cover the beach for more sandy fun.
Sand=$40/yard or $500/truckload

Q: What kind of sand will you be using?
A: The sand is from a local quarry and will be of similar quality to what is currently found at the volleyball courts at Juanita Beach Park and Houghton Beach Park.
Q: Will the sand cover the whole beach?
A: The current beach, combined with some new sand, will be redistributed over the entire beach. In addition, two sand mountains will be built for kids to play in and on.
Q: How long will it take to get the sand on the beach?
A: Once the project is funded, it will take about 10 days to get the sand on the beach.
