Update: Dockton Park Moorage Renovation Phase 1 Underway

It’s happening! Starting November 9, we’ll be removing the inner moorage section and breakwater finger piers from the dock in anticipation of the new ones! The work will be performed from a barge and is expected to be completed by November 20, but may only take one week. During this time, the entire dock will be closed to public access.

Later this winter, we will replace the interior finger pier dock floats. We anticipate opening up the interior marina area to the public in late spring 2021.

Next up in Summer 2021:

  • Encapsulate or replace the remaining creosote piles
  • Carry out other safety and maintenance items
  • Install pump-out station

As funding becomes available, future work is planned to:

  • Replace the floats on the outer breakwater section

Current construction is funded in part by a Boating Facilities Program grant from the state Recreation and Conservation Office and by the 2020-2025 King County Parks, Recreation, Trails, and Open Space LevyThank you for your support!
